Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon,  “The Help” stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s,  who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, “The Help” is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, “The Help” is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.

“The Help” Takes You Back in Time to the 1960′s Inspires You to Create Change

"The Help" Movie

"The Help" Movie

Not that I’m too quick to admit this but I am a child of the sixties, one who grew up in the south and experienced from the sidelines the lines that were drawn between us based on color. I can tell you that it took a lot of courage for anyone to cross the line to build a friendship with someone of another race.

My mother’s youngest sister was one of those people who, at that time in my young life, created change by accepting others for who they were, and gave me strength to join her in standing up for what was right and to not fear what others would think of me.

Fast forward to today, writing a blog post on the upcoming new feature from Dreamworks Studios and Participant Media called “The Help” opening on the 10th of August is somewhat bittersweet as I see where we were from my childhood and where we are today and where we need to go in the future. Here’s a clip with the director with some background on the upcoming feature:

The story is based on the #1 New York Times best-selling book, “The Help” and stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter,  Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s. These women build a very unlikely friendship based on a writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. Armed with the courage that their sisterhood has forged, these women stand together and make the town see that times are changing.

This movie is sure to evoke emotions from hope to humor and should inspire you and yours to create change that makes a difference for us all.
