The Help

Wednesday, August 10, 2011


Mr. Art @ Home took us to see The Help this evening.  It far exceeded my expectations.  All of the actors gave outstanding performances, and I hope it will be nominated for numerous Academy Awards, including a Best Supporting Actress nomination for Sissy Spacek.

I read the book earlier this summer, and I loved it.  The movie's script closely followed the book, and as a fan of the book, I appreciate that.  You can read my review of The Help here.

Speaking of great books, don't forget to join Bonnie and me for What We're Reading on Saturday, August 20th.  Please share your favorite summer reading with us!

What We're Reading

Until next time...
