Emma Stone stars in a new film about a Southern society girl in the 1960’s who returns from college determined to become a writer, and what she writes about turns her small Mississippi town upside down. Julie Fisk tells Gene & Julie what she thought about The Help.


The Help is a very inspirational story set during the heat of the civil rights movement. Emma Stone plays Skeeter, a young woman who dreams of being a writer.  Skeeter comes to recognize the mistreatment of the housekeepers and help who work in her house and the homes of her friends and neighbors.  She decides to write a tell-all book from the vantage point of the women working in these homes.

This wonderful film is directed by actor-turner-director Tate Taylor.  He does an amazing job with a beautiful story.  You will fall in love with the characters in this film.  Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer turn in Oscar-worthy performances.

The Help is based on a book by Katherine Stockett, but don’t worry about reading the book before seeing the movie.  We all know that movies never live up to the book.

Julie Fisk suggests avoiding eating before the movie.  There is so much food that you will be craving fried chicken afterwards.
