Directed by Tate Taylor and set in Mississippi during 1960´s, the film tells the story of Eugenia "Skeeter" Phelan (Emma Stone), a young white women who moves back home after graduating from the university. There she gets fed up with the racist attitude of her circle of acquaintace, specially when one of them wants to present a proposed bill to provide separate bathrooms for black people. This incident encourages her to write a book about black maids who serve the white rich families.
In this aim, Skeeter has the support of Aibileen Clarck (Viola Davis), the black woman who brought up her when she was a child.

The film won several awards including The Oscar for Best Supporting Actress (Octavia Spencer).
"Airbrushed fairytale it may be, but The Help's account of the push for racial equality in 1960s Mississippi is rousingly effective" Xan Brooks. The Guardian. 27/10/2011.
