The Help: The Movie
So I read The Help.
I loved it.
I saw the movie yesterday morning and I loved it, as well. It kept close enough to the story for me to leave the theater feeling satisfied. A couple of people have mentioned changes that bothered them - some outright and some omissions, but I feel that they were changed/omitted in the interest of the concise nature of film.
If you're inclined, go see it. You don't necessarily have to read the book first, but I recommend it.
Take a hanky. Or two.
