Dreamworks Studios’ The Help, starring DAVID OYELOWO, is released in UK cinemas tomorrow.
Written and directed by Tate Taylor and based on the #1 New York Times best-selling novel by Kathryn Stockett, The Help is set in Mississippi during the 1960s and tells the story of a southern society girl who turns her friends’ lives – and a small Mississippi town – upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families.
The Help is a provocative and inspiring look at what happens when a southern town’s unspoken code of rules and behavior is shattered by three courageous women who strike up an unlikely friendship.
OYELOWO plays the town’s local preacher, Pastor Green, alongside an all-star cast including Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone and Sissy Spacek.
There has been a huge buzz around The Help, which is being tipped as one of the forerunners for the 2012 Oscars. Make sure you catch it on the big screen! Here’s the trailer:
