The Help - film trailer

The Help

Based on the best-selling novel The Help stars Emma Stone (Easy AM) as Skeeter, Viola Davis (Doubt) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny – 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 crossed – even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

The film is directed by Tate Taylor and also stars Bryce Dallas Howard, Allison Janney and Sissy Spacek.

UK release: 28 October 2011
