I have been putting off watching The Help for a long time because I wanted to read the book first. I finally read the book in September, and my daughter and I watched the movie over the weekend. We both loved it. It was funny and sad, infuriating and inspiring all at the same time. It also opened the door to some important conversations with my 9 year old daughter.
I know the movie is some different from the book, and not nearly as detailed, but I thought they did a good job with it.
