Several months ago, we announced that Walt Disney Pictures was making a movie based on the book by Kathryn Stockett entitled THE HELP, starring Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard and Allison Janey. Pictures have recently been released showing the lovely ladies all dolled up in their southern attire. In case, you have not heard of this crazy popular book, it is about three women in the Deep South who have to overcome personal stuggles. A young journalist (Stone) comes back to Mississippi to write a story about the way the slaves treated before the Civil Rights movement. She interviews a former slave (played by Viola Davis) and Howard plays an obnoxious woman who mistreats her slaves. The film will be directed by Stockett’s childhood friend Tate Taylor and hits theaters August 12, 2011. Put this on your must see list, it has Oscar written all over it.
