“The Help”

Emma Stone as Eugenia Skeeter in "The Help"
The movie “The Help” released in August 2011 and Oscar winner of this year’s Academy Awards touches on the subject of segregation and racism. It presents the experiences of black American women who were maids working for white people back in 1963 in the South during the civil rights movement. The movie is spiced up with emotion and it certainly has a way of capturing the viewers’ interest; however, “The Help” producer seems to be quite careful not to overdo the emotional aspect as it could deflect the purpose of the movie.

Inevitably they have come across elements which are perceived as a deviation from the things they consider to be normal based on their standards and acquired values.
