Hey everyone! So today was my day off, and I got to sleep in, get some laundry done, clean the apartment, and go see a movie! I haven't seen a movie in forever, but today was a dreary day and therefore the perfect time to go to the movies. I ended up seeing "The Help" and absolutely am in love with the movie! It's about 2 1/2 hours long, which seems excessive, but I was not bored for one moment. It was inspiring, emotional, and completely entertaining. I give HUGE props to the actresses because they were absolutely flawless. It took real self-control for me not to cry. I cannot say enough about this movie, and recommend that everyone should see it. It has qualities that can be appreciated by all types of people: old, young, black, white, male, female (I think you get the point). There is some cursing involved, but I still think younger audiences could benefit from seeing this movie. They will learn a lot about the history of Civil Rights and will get them asking important questions. All in all, a great move that I would tell anyone to go see.
