"The Help"

Set in Mississippi during the 1960's, Skeeter (Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives- and Mississippi town- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's lifelong friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly and unwillingly caught up in the changing times. This drama stars Emma Stone, Liola Davis and Octavia Spencer and is rated PG-13 and will run for 146 minutes.
