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
©2011





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.

Now, Emily has become Cat, working at a hip advertising agency in London and living on the edge with her inseparable new friend, Angel.

Gabrielle Union stars as a woman who will stop at nothing to rescue her two children being held hostage in a house designed with impenetrable security. No trap, no trick and especially no man inside can match a mother with a mission when she is determined on Breaking In. Producers Will Packer (No Good Deed, Obsessed) and Union (Almost Christmas, Being Mary Jane) reunite for this original thriller directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta, Sense8).

REVIEW: So much better than I anticipated. One fierce, strong and smart mom comes to the rescue of her whole family. These guys who took her kids, don't stand a chance. She's not a MMA fighter or anything, but she is smart and resourceful. I was so in tune with the film, and as a mom, I was on the edge-of-my-set waiting for her to give them what they deserved. No one should take a womans' kids.  Men and women will both love this movie, so  maybe a date nigh…
