Movie of the Month

If you love drama and older-style movies based in a time when racism was rife, with tear-jerker scenes, then this movie, The Help, is for you. Set in the 60's in Mississipi, it's about a young college graduate who returns to her hometown with the hopes of being a novelist and/or journalist. She upsets the whole town when she interviews the black women working for the wealthy, white families, the same women who raise their white children with little thanks in the process.
A real eye-opener. 8/10

Hi Mel,
I loved it. I was a tissue box scenario. lol..

It really shows you how people were, and I believe still, (in some areas) are treated.

Sad, happy, exciting, tearful, heartjerking, most of all it opened my eyes further at what people suffer. It is not right.
