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.
