The Help…

Last night I went with a couple of my friends to see the new movie The Help (the book is by Kathryn Stockett). The movie was much better than I was expecting, and had a different cadence to the movie than is typical. Instead of one climax, the movie was a series of minor ones, which gave it a definite feel that it was a book instead of a movie.

Instead of ruin it for you, I thought I would just comment on the fact that while the story is essentially fiction, it highlights some very real facts about how life “used to be” and what was seen as “normal” yet really was insulting, degrading, and embarrassing.

But, overall the movie is very endearing, touching, inspiring, and entertaining. I am really glad it is doing well in the theaters!
