Blige's “The Living Proof”, music video from the film's end titles.

I saw The Help in the theater and felt it was one of the best movies I've seen in YEARS.  The emotion filled movie is well written and the acting is phenomenal.  It made me laugh and cry but most of all it made me think. I can't wait to get a copy of this to share with my boys as I think its is not only a great watch but also a perfect conversation starter.  We have talked about racism and equality with our boys at length before but I know even for me this movie made the topic so much more real and relevant for me.  We've come along way in just a couple generations but we still have a long way to go.


  1. I really do need to see this. I had every intention of seeing it in the theaters, but then I never made it. I keep meaning to read the book, but again...never got around to it!

  2. I wanted to read the book for a while but you are making me want to see the movie first.


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
