The Help

I went to see The Help with some family yesterday. If you haven't read the book I would suggest it. It's about these women during the civil rights movement in Jackson, Mississippi in the 60's. It's both touching and heartbreaking. The movie was great, especially when you consider that it was based on a book that I read. Usually when I see a movie based on a book I am disappointed but it managed to get the most important parts of the book. Some parts were changed, but that's understandable.... you can only fit in so much. All of the actors were really good, especially Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer who play Aibileen Clark and Minny Jakson. Emma Stone was also good as Skeeter Phelan.

Here's the trailer!
