The Help: A Film About Relationships, Race, and Revolution

Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel "The Help" has been turned into an outstanding movie about abiding relationships, racial justice, and the revolutionary power of writing. It stars Emma Stone as Skeeter, Viola Davis as Aibileen, and Octavia Spencer as Minny. It's a cast that seems like a strange combination until you see the magic on screen. They deliver this evocative story in authentic ways. The official synopsis says: "Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, 'The Help' is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change." Watch the trailer here:
