Based on the bestselling novel by Kathryn Stockett, The Help is a ‘60s period piece set in Mississippi that follows three women as they breakdown racial boundaries in order to work on a book together. The film stars Emma Stone, Viola Davis, and Octavia Spencer, and from the looks of this video featurette DreamWorks sent over, it could be the feel-good film of the summer (unless that Mary J. Blige song ruins it for people).
