The #1 New York Times best seller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. Led by Emma Stone, Academy Award-nominated Viola Davis (Best Supporting Actress, Doubt, 2008), Octavia Spencer and Bryce Dallas Howard, The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project - one that breaks society's rules ad puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy, humor and hope - and complete wth compelling, never-before-seen bonus features - The Help is a timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.
"Viola Davis is awards-worthy..."
-Alynda Wheat, People
