A 2011 dramedy that depicts a Mississippi town's experience adjusting to the changing times of the 60's. Emma Stone plays a southern girl who returns from college determined to become a writer. Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan causes quite the stir when she decides to interview black women in the community who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Though some of her closest friendships hang in the balance, Skeeter is unwilling to give up on her new endeavor, and soon more women come forward to tell their stories. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say about it. In addition to Emma Stone, "The Help" stars Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain, Chris Lowell, Sissy Spacek & Octavia Spencer.
