The Help

2011 | 146 min | K-7 | drama

The film takes place in Jackson, Mississippi, USA and tells about the lives of African-American maids who worked in white homes in the early 1960s.

Jackson’s sorority girl Skeeter is an exception in her small town when she begins interviewing black women. These women have taken care of the host families’ households all their lives. At first, only Skeeter’s best friend’s family maid named Aibileen agrees to talk, but as they continue to work together, the other maids decide to open up.

The Help is a timeless, universal and touching story about friendship that crosses borders and tells that change is possible.
