An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960's decides to write a book detailing the african american maid's point of view on the white families they work for, and their hardships they go through on a day to day basis.

The #1 New York Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone, Academy Award®-nominated Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, Doubt, 2008), Octavia Spencer and Bryce Dallas Howard, The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project — one that breaks society’s rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humor and hope — and complete with compelling, never-before-seen bonus features — The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

Editor's Note
A 1960s-era Mississippi debutante sends her community into an uproar by conducting a series of probing interviews with the black servants behind some of her community's most prominent families. Skeeter (Emma Stone) has just graduated from college, and she's eager to launch her career as a writer. In a moment of inspiration, Skeeter decides to focus her attention on the black female servants who work in her community. Her first subject is Aibileen (Viola Davis), the devoted housekeeper who has been employed by Skeeter's best friend's family for years. By speaking with Aibileen, Skeeter becomes an object of scorn to the wealthy locals, who view her actions as directly challenging to the established social order. Before long, even more servants are coming forward to tell their stories, and Skeeter discovers that friendship can blossom under the most unlikely of circumstances. Bryce Dallas Howard co-stars in a touching tale of race relations based on author Kathryn Stockett's best-selling novel of the same name.

Expert Review The Help - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/5/2011 5:00 AM
The Help is a masterful emotional epic with equal parts crowd-pleasing joy and shattering, complex pain. It paints in broad strokes, yet beautifully renders each minute detail. It is structured within a thoroughly traditional framework, yet its themes color outside the lines. These seeming contradictions are quite fitting, for this is a piece of cinema about the beauty, the pain, the profoundly perplexing and indefinable nature of living in an ever-changing world, a world in which love and hate fight to exist in equal measure. The Help is about the struggle to celebrate the love and eradicate the hate -- a struggle that started well before the film's 1960s setting and continues through today and beyond....read the full review
