The Huffington Post reported back in August that ‘The Help’ movie has thrusted nannies into the centre of American conversation. Today (12 March 2012) ‘The Help’ came out in the UK on DVD as well as via online streaming movie rental services such as Blinkbox and Film4oD, so will it be the topic of conversation in the UK or did the interest in nannies and housekeepers peak when the movie had it’s cinema release?
I read the book by Kathryn Stockett and really enjoyed that, so I am looking forward to watching The Help movie. I hope it sticks quite closely to the book, though books don’t always transfer to the movies that well, with luck The Help will be an exception. Certainly Octavia Spencer did win the Oscar for best supporting actress, so that should mean it’s definitely worth watching the movie.
