About the Movie

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, Viola Davis, 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, The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: "The Help" takes us on a pop-cultural tour that savors the picturesque, and strengthens stereotypes it purports to shatter. – Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal, Aug 11, 2011

Fresh: As hard to dislike as it is to truly admire, this artfully manipulative issue movie knows where its strengths lie... and most of them lie in Viola Davis. – Film4, Nov 1, 2011

Fresh: There are some magnificent elements here... The downside is the mawkishness and the rambling narrative structure. – Geoffrey Macnab, Independent (UK), Nov 1, 2011

Fresh: It tackles a challenging, inflammatory subject in the corniest, safest way possible. – David Sexton, London Evening Standard, Oct 28, 2011
