Because of my extensive book tour and traveling, I've really neglected my film-watching duties. Sorry about that. However, I was able to watch the newly released film version of the best seller, “The Help”.
I don't usually go for chick flicks, but this film knocked me out. What a great film! All the acting is excellent. The look and attention to detail marvelous, the editing is spot on. But the most impressive aspect of the film is the direction by Tate Taylor.
What great characters and a terrific story – I was misty-eyed at the end. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll come away a little wiser. Go see “The Help”.
(But, I don't think this film will do so well in Mississippi.)
I give “The Help” an A.
