My Mom and I finally saw The Help and thoroughly enjoyed it. We read the book a couple years ago and liked it but I must admit that I liked the movie a bit more than the book. I thought the book was a tad too long and sort of slow starting; the movie gets right to the point and wastes no time making you a part of the story. I LOVED the actress who played Celia because I love the character so much and of course Aibileen was portrayed beautifully by Viola Davis.
Go watch this movie, it is an important story about a crucial time and topic that is a part of our country's history.
