"Change begins with a whisper."
Based on the popular, bestselling book, THE HELP stars Emma Stone (EASY A) as Skeeter, Academy Award® - nominated Viola Davis (DOUBT) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny - three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s. They form an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and ultimately puts them all at risk.
From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are meant to be crossed - even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.
Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humour and hope, THE HELP is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.
