Emma Stone and Viola Davis in a photo from The Help
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
For awhile back in 2010 we heard a lot about the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s novel THE HELP which would star Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis and Sissy Spacek and then it kind of just fell off the radar. Today we have another look at Emma Stone who plays Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan and Viola Davis who plays Aibileen Clark. The film follows three women who become friends during the 1960’s when segregation was still in effect and is directed by Tate Taylor.
This was such a popular book last year and I heard so many good things about it that I moved it to my “gotta read” list. The film has a great cast and since Tate Taylor is real life buddies with Kathryn Stockett, they’re sure to stay as true to the novel as possible. THE HELP is set to hit theaters on August 12th, 2011.
