There is a lot of raving going on about this movie and rightly so! The book had a huge impact, and the movie is the perfect visual vehicle for the book. The cast is brilliant, and they deserve all their awards.
This is really just the beginning for Emma Stone - she is going to be a huge star!
Octavia Spencer is a real cutie and has all the funny lines as Minny Jackson!
Being a teacher, I can relate to the life of a nanny, and Viola Davis plays the part of Aibileen with absolute conviction.
Bryce Dallas Howard plays the villain, Hilly Holbrook to a T. Her face just screams vicious. (Hard to believe she is sweet-as-pie Ron Howard's daughter!)
Celia Foote is an endearing character. Very Marilyn and naive. Jessica Chastain is a sweetie in this role.
If you haven't seen it yet, make a point of watching The Help, and give the book a go too. There is much to be learned from a story such as this. xx
