THE HELP directed by Tate Taylor is rated PG-13 and set to release August 10, 2011 starring Academy Award® nominee Viola Davis, Allison Janney, Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Oscar® winner Sissy Spacek and Academy Award® nominee Cicely Tyson.
THE HELP, set in Mississippi during the 1960′s is about three very different yet extraordinary women who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules. It’s from this friendship that a sisterhood emerges which instills in each and everyone of them the courage to go beyond the lines that define them as they realize that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed.
“The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.
I was able to attend an advanced screening of The Help and I loved it! I thought it would be cliche but it was warm, funny and inspiring. I (and nearly everyone in the theater) laughed, cried and came away with gratefulness that change can start with just a handful of heroes. I can't wait to read the book now!
