The Help

Kathryn Stockett's runaway best-seller shows up in cinemas with an impressive cast. Emma Stone (Crazy, Stupid, Love.) is "Skeeter," an unconventional Southern gal who stirs up her small Mississippi town circa 1960 by writing an oral history of African-American domestic servants. Viola Davis ("Law & Order: SVU") and Octavia Spencer ("Ugly Betty") are among the outspoken maids whose stories get explicated. Add Allison Janney, Cicely Tyson, Sissy Spacek and Bryce Dallas Howard to the cast, and you've got an incredible list of ladies. 137 minutes PG-13.
