The Help is on the Way!

Screen shot 2011-06-07 at 8.12.23 AM.pngLast summer, I read one of the best books ever written, "The Help," a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon that has now been turned into a movie. "The Help" stars Emma Stone ("Easy A") as Skeeter, Academy Award®-nominated Viola Davis ("Doubt") as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny--three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

"The Help" offers a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town's unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship. From their improbable alliance, a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed--even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Take a look at this featurette from the film which opens August 12 in theaters nationwide and if you haven't read The Help yet, then what are you waiting for?
