The Help Movie Review

I have been thinking and talking about "The Help" a LOT for the last couple weeks. When I heard it was coming out in theatres, I read the book, which was just fabulous! I have been talking it up to everyone I know, because I think this is a revolutionary book!

Last night, my husband and I drove almost 3 hours to see an early screening of "The Help." I haven't been this excited about a movie in a long time...So, did it live up to my hype?

YES!!!! I had a couple friends express concern to me that the movie just wouldn't do the book justice, and they were expecting to be let down a bit by the movie. That was certainly not the case for me! The movie was a fantastic mix of great acting, authentic historical representations, and a big dose of heart! It made me laugh and cry almost in the same scene. And dare I say, I think I prefer the movie's overall ending even a tad bit more than the book.

My husband came with me, and he loved it just as much. He hadn't read the book, so I thought it would be good to get his perspective. When it was over, he immediately said, "This is a movie we are buying right when it comes out!" He also said it was the funniest movie he had seen in a long time..."not stupid humor, but humor with meaning."

Not only is it funny, "The Help" is full of thoughtful, impactful messages. I was even able to apply the courage needed in this movie to my own life as I face lines that need to be crossed and changes that need to be made today. This movie encouraged me to never step back from what I am passionately working to change! We can make a difference!

I will be recommending this movie to everyone I know, from the babysitter last night to my fitness clients today! I encourage you all to go see "The Help" when it comes out in theatres tomorrow on August 10th!
