    The #1 New York Times best seller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone, Academy Award-nominated Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, Doubt, 2008), 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, humour and hope — and complete with compelling, never-before-seen special features — The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An excellent film of troubled times in the USA... "The Help" explores the experience of African American women and their position as "slaves" or "help" as the title implies as they work with wealthy white American families in the USA in the troubled times of the 1960s. Based on the emotive and moving novel, the film adaptation features an inspiring cast that includes Emma Stone (The Favourite), Jessica Chastain (Interstellar), Viola Davis (Hidden Figures), Allison Janney (I, Tonya), Bryce Dallas Howard (Jurassic World) and Sissy Spacek (Carrie, JFK); the film is full of humour, hope and genuine poignancy as the "help" attempt to improve their social standing in these difficult times. A brilliant watch at 140 minutes.
