This adaptation of the bestselling novel about an aspiring journalist (Emma Stone) who tells the tales of black maids in Jim Crow-era Mississippi could easily have been a disastrous exercise in cultural appropriation. But instead, it’s “a deeply touching human story filled with humor and heartbreak… The Help is an exhilarating gift.” (Rolling Stone)
