The Help

USA | 9:00 pm

Surely one of the box-office "sleepers" of 2011, given its sustained success, this engrossing adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's best seller finds a would-be author (Emma Stone) interviewing Southern housekeepers about their experiences. Viola Davis and Oscar winner Octavia Spencer are superb as two of the most prominent interviewees. The excellent cast also includes Bryce Dallas Howard, Jessica Chastain, Sissy Spacek, Cicely Tyson, Aunjanue Ellis and Mary Steenburgen.
