Tate Taylor’s ‘The Help’ got off to an impressive start at the box office, grossing at least $25 million in its first weekend and earning a rare A+ CinemaScore from delighted moviegoers.
‘The Help’ is only the second movie of the year to receive an A+ CinemaScore.
The film almost beat the summer blockbuster “Rise Of The Planet Of The Apes” which made $27 million.
I saw the movie this Sunday, and it is a beautifully acted and powerfully told story. Viola Davis deserves an Academy Award in my opinion. Several other actors in the movie (Octavia Spencer, Sissy Spacek, Emma Stone) all deserve nomination and wins also.
I highly recommend seeing this fantastic movie.
