About The Film & Cast:
The #1 New York Times bestseller by Kathryn Stockett comes to vivid life through the powerful
performances of a phenomenal ensemble cast. The Help is an inspirational, courageous and empowering
story about very different, extraordinary women in the 1960s South who build an unlikely friendship around
a secret writing project — one that breaks society‟s rules and puts them all at risk. Filled with poignancy,
humor and hope — and complete with compelling, never-before-seen bonus features — The Help is a
timeless, universal and triumphant story about the ability to create change.

The Help stars Emma Stone as the courageous Eugenia „Skeeter‟ Phelan, who goes against the beliefs of
her family and friends to find her own voice. The critically praised, emotional performance of Viola Davis
as Aibileen Clark, a woman who secretly dreams of one day having more than she has been given, offers
a deep emotional storyline. The breakthrough performance of Octavia Spencer as Minny Jackson, whose
sass and tough exterior disguise the pain and fear she faces every day, brings both drama and humor to
the film. Bryce Dallas Howard breathes life into the catty Jackson socialite Hilly Holbrook and Jessica
Chastain brings charm and humor as Celia Foote, a kind housewife living outside of town who longs to fit
in. Sissy Spacek, Allison Janney and Ahna O‟Reilly also provide vivacious performances that round out
this all-star female ensemble.

Olympians: The Lightning Thief, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian
