Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, â€œThe Helpâ€ stars Emma Stone (â€œEasy Aâ€) as Skeeter, Academy AwardÂ®â€“nominated Viola Davis (â€œDoubtâ€) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minnyâ€”three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossedâ€”even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times. Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, â€œThe Helpâ€ is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.
