In Jackson, Mississippi, in the 60's, the aspirant writer Skeeter Phelan has just graduated and returns home after finding a job writing in a futile newspaper column in the local newspaper. When she arrives home, she finds that her nanny and family's maid Constantine Jefferson is gone. Skeeter sees the chance of writing a book about the relationship of the black maids with the Southern society for an editor from New York. First she convinces Aibileen Clark to open her heart to her; then Minny Jackson is unfairly fired by the arrogant Hilly Holbrook, who is a leader in the racist high society, and Minny decides to tell her stories after finding a job with the outcast Celia Foote. Soon eleven other maids accept to be interviewed by Skeeter that also tells the truth about Constantine. When the book "The Help" is released, Jackson's high society will never be the same.

I first saw "The Help" in high school. It was one of the only movies I remember seeing during the 90's, and it was on VHS. As a boy, I thought it was a great movie, but as an adult I think I can't get the experience out of my head. The movie is set in a rural town in Pennsylvania. It is the last place that its owner, Doug, (Paul Newman) wants to be. He works as a small town store owner, but his family, a sister, and mother, don't really accept his new life. He gets involved with the local drug dealers and takes them out one by one. This sets the stage for an unforgettable, romantic, and emotional film. The supporting cast, especially Newman and Jamie Foxx, are great in their roles. Newman gives one of the best performances of his career. His character, Doug, is so real and pure in his emotions that I couldn't help but fall in love with him. The actors are perfect for their roles, and Newman's Oscar performance was just as good as the others. The music is also great, and I like the way that the film cuts between scenes in order to emphasize the characters' thoughts. There is also a lot of great cinematography. The background scenes are gorgeous and shot beautifully. The cinematography helps give a feeling of mystery to the viewer. I recommend this film to anyone, especially people who have no interest in art, but like romance or tragedy. 7/10

If you want a real Greek tragedy, this is not it. There are no heavy handed speeches, no big budget scenes of "ok this is what you have to do". But if you are a real Greek, and are longing for a bit of Greek life, this is it. Don't worry, there will be no scenes of longing for the love of your life. The two main characters here are not even in the same room together, but what do you know. If you are expecting a movie about how life in Greece was in the early 80s, this will be a long shot. But if you are longing for a story about family, and the impact that these families have on the rest of the community, this is for you. If you are a bit of an old fashioned, Greek person, or a Greek girl, this is the film for you.

This is a pretty accurate portrayal of the era. Like all of the other films, it has been updated, and changed a bit in its timing, but the general themes and values are very much intact. The historical settings are clearly present, with the general location being the current New York City. The filming locations are good, but it does not make the movie look realistic. The acting is superb. Allison Janney is great as a young girl named Bella, who is simply a part of her family. Michael Caine is very convincing as the man who helps her get accepted to college. Billy Bob Thorton is amazing as the father who teaches her to read and write. All of these actors are simply superb. Even though there are other actors in the cast, they all deliver strong performances. The story is touching, and not in a dark way. It is very realistic. The ending is completely unexpected and unexpected. The whole movie is believable, and does not just rely on a happy ending. Overall, this movie is worth seeing. The story is original and the characters are great. It is definitely not an "epic" movie, but it is good and worth seeing. I recommend this movie to all movie fans, and definitely not to just those who like comedies, historical dramas or romantic comedies. This movie is for everyone.
