Last night I was able to see "The Help" with one of my favorite girls, Allison. We had both read the book previously and were excited to see the movie. In a word, the movie was fantastic. The casting was wonderful- each character (even poor Mae Mobley) exceeded my expectations. The movie was serious at times, hilarious at others. The movie looked just like what I imagined Jackson, Mississippi would look like in the 1960's- complete with the pink bathrooms and mile-high hair. If this movie doesn't get nominated come awards season, someone's going to be eating a few slices of Hilly's pie.
I'm telling you, this is not a movie to miss. Run to your movie theater and see "The Help."
