A look at what happens when a southern town's unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.

PG-13
137 minutes
Emma Stone, Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer

Based on the book, The Help - Kathryn Stockett
, which I reviewed and posted HERE.



My Opinion:
This was exactly what I hoped it would be. It was almost identical in comparison, with only a few small differences. They didn't matter, since it is such a powerful story, told either way in book or film.
That only means that there is no reason whatsoever why as to you missing it.
That can only mean I think it's a must-see!
I really loved the book, and loved the film too. It was nice seeing it come to life.


9/10


Recommend? Definitely, but not for children. They are impressionable.

  1. I saw this the past weekend and loved it! I haven't read the book, I prefer to read the book first but that didn't work out for me.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
