A movie review: The Help

Christian and I had a date night recently and have been planning to see this movie for some time. I'm really glad we set aside some time to go see it. It may be the best movie I've seen all year.


Perhaps I felt so good walking out of the theater just because of how refreshing it felt to see such a good story on the screen. Perhaps it was the story more than the movie that I liked. That would certainly explain how amazing the book sales are. But, there is no denying how authentic some of the actors appeared to be in the roles. Emma Stone may not have been as impressive as some of the others, but it was fine for her role in the movie. The parts of Minny and Aibilene are what really pulled the movie together and pulled at your heart in the process.

You really must set aside some time to see this movie.
