The Help

The Help (2011)

Drama

De film speelt zich af in Mississippi tijdens de jaren '60. Skeeter (Stone) is een meisje uit het Zuiden dat terugkeert van school en vastbesloten is om een schrijfster te worden. Ze zorgt echter voor heel wat ophef bij haar vrienden – en bij de rest van de bevolking van het kleine stadje – wanneer ze besluit om de zwarte vrouwen te interviewen die hun hele leven lang zorgen voor de prominente zuidelijke families. Aibileen (Davis), de huishoudster van Skeeters beste vriendin, is de eerste die openlijk durft spreken. Aibileen en Skeeter blijven samenwerken en al gauw komen meer vrouwen hun verhaal vertellen. Ongewone vriendschappen worden gevormd en een nieuw soort zusterschap ontstaat, maar niet vooraleer iedereen in het stadje z’n eigen zegje heeft gehad.
