This is a beautiful movie. It had a good storyline. Very powerful actors and script. I am surprised that I didn't hear about it when it was released. For such an emotional movie, it is a definite a must see.

The movie has good acting and a sold cast but the movie lacks on characters and story.

In the few and far between world of feminine films, it is a joy to see one that touches both sense and sensibility. I am not sure why The Help caused such a HooHah and why this slipped by so quietly. The storyline was strong, the characters well rounded and the cinematography, acting, pace, and casting spot on. I loved the book and I loved the film - that's rare.

When this first came out I was curious to see it, then I didn't care so much anymore. Thanks to HBO, i recorded it to watch whenever I felt up to it, and I enjoyed it. A sad, emotional movie with great performances by everyone in it. Even Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson, not so much known for their acting, but more so for their singing, did an excellent job.
