Read the winner of “The Help” children’s story contest.
Which did you like better? The Help movie or The Help book? They both discuss the civil rights movement and discrimination in a creative way–but they aren’t exactly the same!
Reviews of “THE HELP” MOVIE
- Juanita H.: “Saw it three times—great movie! Loved it!”
- Jeanie R.: “Loved it! Saw it twice and still planning on reading the book. And I’d go see the movie again!”
- Rhonda L.: “Love that movie!”
- Pam C.: “I really loved the movie. I’ve heard the book is great. I plan to read it.”
- Lynne W.: “Cicely Tyson’s character was the role of a lifetime…”
- DawnEna W.: “It was an amazing movie. Great story and great acting. I liked that I saw a few childhood actors from the seventies. I noticed that some people in the audience cried, while others laughed. The difference could have been the era they grew up in. I could see how perhaps it could also make some people angry. For me, it was a very ‘feel good…you go, girl!’ movie. Loved it and will see it several more times.”
- Lorri C.: “For one of my best friend’s birthday, she and I went to a matinee. It just so happened the small audience was four black women and four white women (and later into the movie, one brave MAN!). I thought it was interesting how all of us seemed to react the same ways—with tears, with laughter, with anger. I laughed out loud and yes, I cried out loud. It’s one of the few movies I’ve ever loved enough to want to go see again.”
