The Help (Tate Taylor – 2011) C+

It’s well made and the acting is very good. I think Jessica Chastain was just as good as Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer here. I could not see or know that she is the same actress from Tree of Life until after I finished watching the film and looked up the credits! She really had an amazing year. The story is a bit over the top and paints everything and every character with a very broad brush as far as I could tell. That makes both the good and the bad tough to believe and had me rolling my eyes a few too many times. I gotta say though, that pie scene was priceless.
