“The Help” Movie (2011) — Well Worth Watching AGAIN; So Topical, So Powerful.
(which I had bought many years ago)
I had seen this powerful & touching movie many years ago — most likely soon after it came out. I liked it so much, and it moved me so much, that I went and got the paperback from Amazon. I haven’t got around to reading it as yet — but I was sure glad to lay my hands on my copy, in my book littered office.
I am getting her to read, out aloud (for I), most nights, to “Kill A Mockingbird“. I thought this movie will help her get more perspective. She liked it — which was good.
Wow. It is set in the 1960s, but it might as well be TODAY!
Racism is more virulent than I ever remember — and I am not even sure what it is like down South. So, watching this movie is sobering. Makes us realize that we haven’t made much progress when it comes to Civil Rights. Lets just remember — Black Lives Matter.
