This movie exceeded all of my expectations. I haven't watched this film before and I have no idea why. This was heartfelt, emotional, and really can open someone's eyes if they needed it. Octavia Spencer, and Viola Davis do an amazing job putting this story on the screen. Well done all around
-The cast was amazing and so well done. From Spencer, to Davis, to Emma stone, and Dallas Bryce Howard.
- The character development of Skeeter's mom throughout is wonderful and makes you cry almost. From breaking her maids heart to helping her daughter in the end.
- The fact that they took that risk and made this book and it became so successful was just something that was amazing in society at the time and a true cultural reset as we would say.
- I almost cried multiple times for the way that these maids were treated just because of the color of their skin, and it is not right. They couldn't use the same bathroom as white people, they had to do everything for the white people without even a thank you and I just can't imagine treating someone that way because of the color of their skin.
- Everything from the comedy to the emotional side of this film was great and I can't wait to watch it again some day.
Overall: 5 out 5 Stars
An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African American maids' point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.
The book was great and the movie was too which is not something I say very often. I'm one of those people who either likes the book or the movie but usually never likes both.
