Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Help, based on the 2009 novel by Kathryn Stockett, depicts relationships between black maids in white households in 1960 Mississippi. Brilliantly executed, the film adeptly intertwines the lives of three black maids and their communities with the socialite white women they serve and their communities. Throw in one socialite with an independent mind, high morals, a good education, and a bent for writing and a drama is born that is more than worth watching.
