A Must See Movie....

Photo credit: Wikipedia
Today I went to see the movie "The Help." I highly recommend that everyone go see it. It was a really good movie. 

**Warning** Bring a lot of tissues, you will shed a few tears. 

The movie is based on the book "The Help" written by Kathryn Stockett. The story takes place in Jackson, Mississippi and is about life as African -American house maids working in white homes and caring for white children in the 1960's. 

I cried, and I laughed. It is truly a movie worth seeing. Even the homes and costumes were true to the era.

Go see it!

I agree...wonderful movie. I think people will turn out for it too. Goes to show movies with plot, character, setting-story-can be done still!!!

Wasn't Sissy Spacek grand?

I just got the book on Wednesday for my online book club and plan to start reading it tomorrow. I'll see the movie after...usually the book is better than the movie but with the buzz I've heard, I think it might be a tie in this case !

I was wondering if it's good and heard the book is very good. Ames, did you read the book? I'm wondering if I should do either/both and in what order...Just read Nonna's comments. Looks like both are good.

I haven't seen the movie yet but I read the book last summer and I LOVED it. In fact I'll go look for it now and start reading it again, thanks for reminding me. :)

I downloaded The Help and listened to it on my iPod. Four woman do the voices and it is fabulous! I'm debating going to see the movie because I'm afraid I'll be disappointed if the voices are different! (I'll probably go, though).

Namaste..........cj
