Last night I, and about 200 others, attended a VIP reception & screening for the upcoming movie The Help.
Starring Viola Davis & co-starring Octavia Spencer, The Help travels back to the 1960′s to tell the stories of two African American maids living in Jackson, Mississippi.
The film, which was adapted from the book The Help, showcases the emotions of the troubled past and gives viewers an insight into unexplored minds.
I’m sure you are wondering, “did you like the movie?” Well, I LOVED IT!
The acting was phenomenal, the storyline was continuous, leaving me satisfied and in complete understanding after each scene, and the message made me feel “all kinds of good” inside.
After the screening, Director Tate Taylor, The Help author Kathryn Stocket, Viola Davis & Octavia Spencer chatted with the audience about their roles in the production. They spoke candidly about their filming experience and what they loved most about the movie.
Me, My Hair & the City gives it The Help two thumbs up! You should check it out!
