Movie: “The Help”

I can’t wait to see this movie!

Anyone who reads this blog knows how much equality for everyone means to me. And the courage of anyone to stand up and change the status quo – well, this movie is right up my alley.

Based on the NY Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett, the movie – which isn’t out yet – is already getting Oscar buzz.

The book tells the story of a group of black domestic maids in 1960s Jackson, Miss., who band together to tell the sometimes sad, sometimes triumphant stories of lives spent toiling for upper class Southern whites. “The Help” is both uproariously funny and poignant, resonating with readers across the country.

From IMDB: Jackson, Mississippi, 1962 – aspiring writer Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan returns home after college, where unexpected friendships with African-American maids Aibeleen Clark and Minny Jackson result in a book that gives a previously unheard voice to a community’s suffering.

Can. Not. Wait.
