I went and watched this movie the other night with two friends who i haven't seen in a while (a whole week can you believe that?! haha) soooo we had a lot of talking to do:P The Help is set in the deep south in the 1960's when people were very prejudiced. Skeeter, who dreams of being a writer decides to write a book of interviews of the black maids who work in her hometown of Jackson, Mississippi. She finally convinces one maid, Aibileen, to help her. Then another, Minny, joins them.
After much persuading from Aibileen and Minny and a death, many more maids join.
There was a lot of swearing but that was the only bad thing I noticed. you can read the review here from plugged in. The movie stayed really true to the book, which I loved. You should TOTALLY read the book if you haven't already. The movie was so sad and so funny.
