It is rare to find a film that meets all the qualifications of a spoiled film snob (myself), but The Help met them all… and then gave some.
The film was beautifully scripted and had some amazing cinematography to match. I remember sitting in the theater, and a woman on my row sobbing due to one simple scene in the film. It made me sad, but at the same time, it was beautiful. I, too, felt many emotions during and after the film. I laughed, I cried, I wanted to scream out loud… but overall, I wanted to be a better person.
The Help is one of those films that you buy the day of its DVD release, and watch continuously over a month…over and over again, and then continue to watch. And I believe that each time you watch it, all those emotions you felt the first time you watched will be experienced again.
Normally, I suggest films, but not this one. No, I have already put it on everyone’s list of must-see-films. After you see it, you will know why everyone is talking about The Help. And, hey, I think that you will be talking about it along with them.
There are so many amazing moments in The Help and the characters are sure to be ones you remember and can relate to in one way or another.
