THE HELP! Okay, so I treated myself to a viewing of the new film. Either way, I enjoyed what I saw. Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer were simply terrific! Bryce Dallas Howard and Emma Stone were sensational, too. One of my friends, Donald, isn't interested in seeing the film because of the way blacks are treated in it. I understand that. I think he's missing out, though, because the black characters in the film are courageous, hard-working and loaded with integrity. Their jobs as house servants didn't define them. Their characters did!! Heck, I'd rather know THEM than a host of black lawyers and doctors out here in the world today!
