The Help (2011)

An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.

I LOVED this movie!!! Having grown up during this time period, I was aware of what was happening around our nation, but I didn't realize who different things were in the South. I was raised in Ohio were we didn't have 'help'. The acting in this movie was outstanding, the story a wonderful one, but the thing I took away from it the most is that once we recognize OUR truth, we will be free. I'm only sorry I didn't watch this sooner... "I know where I'm going because I know where I've been"
