English
Drama
Aibileen Clark is a middle-aged African-American maid who has spent her life raising white children and has recently lost her only son; Minny Jackson is an African-American maid who has often offended her employers despite her family's struggles with money and her desperate need for jobs; and Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan is a young white woman who has recently moved back home after graduating college to find out her childhood maid has mysteriously disappeared. These three stories intertwine to explain how life in Jackson, Mississippi revolves around "the help"; yet they are always kept at a certain distance because of racial lines.

Bem, vou falar em português por preguiça. Um dos filmes mais bonitos que já assisti. Se o mundo todo assistisse esse filme, com certeza não haveria preconceito racial. Acredito que da mesma forma que o preconceito racial foi acabando aos poucos, o preconceito sexual, religioso acabará. Vivemos em um mundo taxado, mas conforme o tempo for passando, isso irá diminuindo. O preconceito sempre existirá, mas sempre em menor escala. Se os negros venceram parte dessa barreira, por quê os homossexuais, os religiosos e outras diferentes etnias não venceriam? Assistam, recomendo demais. :') Emma Stone sempre fazendo ótimos papéis!

I just watched The Help, almost immediately after finishing the book. Now, when comparing The Film to The Book it was based on (generally speaking), one major rule of thumb almost always applies: The Book is better. The Help is no exception.

Accordingly, with the novel still so fresh in the back More

Great watch, probably won't watch again, and can recommend.

To be fair, you should watch this prepared for what it is:
a racial suffrage movie.

That means that it is filled with racism and unfair strife, and stupid jerks of the elite class that are under the impression that they can still bu More
