One of the most anticipated books turned films to be released this summer is Dreamworks The Help. I've been one of thousands of people that have been patiently waiting. So when I was given the opportunity to attend a screening last week, I cleared my schedule to make sure I could make it.
Now I must honestly admit that I haven't finished reading the book (gasp), but I do intend to. So going into the movie I had a brief synopsis of what it was about and what I expected. I can say that this movie lived up to all my expectations. It was an AWESOME movie! I never cry. I didn't cry watching Titanic, nor the Notebook but for this I did. My eyes welled up but it could have also been from all the laughing I did too. This film was hilarious even though it dealt with serious issues of our times. This story teaches you about the powerful relationships between women. The Help will make you realize how important it is to treat those around you with equal respect and love, no matter what. We are all the same.
I really suggest you grab your spouse or group of girls and head out to the theaters this weekend to catch this movie. Even if you haven't read the book, this story will touch your heart and have you appreciate those around you even more.
