Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Bryce Dallas Howard in The Help trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
The strangest thing to me about THE HELP is that the basic description of the book doesn’t do the actual story justice. To me, a movie set in the 60’s, about a young reporter that goes back to the South to write a book about how slaves were treated before the Civil Rights movement would be dramatic and a little depressing. But the trailer makes it look pretty good and now I think this could be a sleeper hit this summer. It’s based of a very popular book of the same name by Kathryn Stockett.
I’m excited to see Emma Stone in a role like this. Based off what little we’ve seen, it appears that she does a great job with this role. The film stars Emma Stone, Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney and Viola Davis. Tate Taylor (who is also a childhood friend of Stockett’s) will be directing.
