Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


The Help

I finally got to watch this movie on DVD. Free from the library. Oh how much I love the library.

I admit I did feel odd not seeing it in the theatres and being able to be apart of the 'know it crowd' when it was being discussed, but for my budget, nothing beats free.

Oh I cried. I cried soo much and then I tried not to cry and even cried some more.  Sigh.
That was a good movie.

I wish I had read the book first though.

I still might.

Did you already see the movie?

The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project — one that breaks society’s rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humor and hope — and complete with compelling, never-before-seen bonus features — The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

  1. I saw it three times, and I absolutely LOVE it. It was so sad, but also hilarious!

  2. I have not seen the movie, but read the book, you should still read it. I will check out our library and see if they have the movie.

  3. I have yet to see this movie either, but I still would really like to :)

    I heard that it was a very good movie so I'm excited to eventually see it.

  4. i cried too girl... and yeah, i laughed... and cried more :)

  5. That makes me think of "The Color Purple". First I read then watched it. The movie was inadequate to cover what the book did, but it made a valiant attempt. They both made me cry. I will have to see that movie.

  6. I love both, the movie does a great job with the book but I still recommend reading the book :)
