A Helping of the Help This Weekend

The Help movie posterSorry about the title. I couldn’t help myself. Oy, sorry about that too.

Anyway, after weeks (months?) of talking about it, the very rainy Sunday provided a perfect opportunity to see The Help movie.

The theater was packed and by the end you could hear plenty of sniffles throughout the room. I may or may not have been one of the ones sniffling.

I thought the movie was great. Of course, some events were left out or overlooked, but that’s necessary to make the movie a decent length. I read the book a few years ago now so my memory of the details is spotty, but the movie seemed to capture the spirit of the story.

And, a fun fact is that the actress who plays Minny, Octavia Spencer, is also a narrator on the audiobook!
