I realize this is a work of fiction, based on a book, but having lived through most of this, growing up in the south in the 1950s and 1960s, the story seems to be very plausible.
The 1950s and 1960s that I knew, and depicted in this movie, were part of the “transition” years between slavery, which was abolished, and true freedom. Well-off white families had black maids, often referred to as “the help” paid relatively little and, at least depicted here, ordered around and expected to be slaves to their employer, even though they were “free” to leave. But they needed work, times were hard, and they often raised white children while other family members raised their own children.
That is the situation in this movie, depicted in Jackson, Mississippi. Was Missisippi in the 1950s and 1960s the most racially bigoted state? I don’t know, but a former co-worker who happens to be black attended Ole Miss back then and he said it was a very difficult environment.
Emma Stone is aspiring journalist Skeeter Phelan, herself raised by a black maid (Cicely Tyson) who had almost become part of the family. Now Skeeter was back home after graduating from Ole Miss and began to clearly see the situation, and how bigoted her former friends were and how poorly maids were treated. She wanted to do something significant, to give voice to their plights, and sought to write the book, The Help, based on interviews she would do with maids.
Perhaps the key maid character is Viola Davis as Aibileen Clark. The other is Octavia Spencer as Minny Jackson.
Skeeter’s friend and now housewife is Bryce Dallas Howard as Hilly Holbrook. Hilly becomes the main activist for keeping maids separate and “in their place” which includes a petition to require all domestic employers to have a separate bathroom for their black maids. As the story moves along we witness Skeeter and Hilly becoming former friends as their personal agendas drive them in different directions.
The movie is well-written and well-acted. It tells an important story of that time. While it is a very serious, and often sad, subject the story is also sprinkled liberally with humor. Especially the “special” chocolate pie that Minny bakes for Hilly after Hilly had fired her.

A really poor adaptation of a quite brilliant book. I find it difficult to comprehend how they managed to go so wrong with such excellent material. This felt like second rate TV movie throughout, poorly directed and cast. It was very difficult to feel any empathy with Emma Stone’s portrayal of Skeeter, her performance lacked any of the depth and complexity of the written equivalent. Bryce Dallas Howard also overplayed Hilly Holbrook in what could have become one of the great on screen villains. The cinematography was also very bland and poor. Having recently seen the likes of Drive, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy at the cinema ‘The Help’ appears as if it was shot by a 12 year old with his first camera in comparison. Normally I find IMDb ratings an accurate basis of a film’s quality. How this Sunday afternoon schmaltz has got 8 stars is beyond me.
