DreamWorks Pictures – The Help movie #thehelp

DreamWorks Pictures Movie Screening of  The Help Movie #thehelp

As a busy mom, I don’t get out that often to movies alone.  I don’t really have the time (or energy) to sit with a bag of popcorn and soda pop to enjoy a great movie.  Thanks to DreamWorks Pictures, I was able to do JUST that this past weekend @blogher11The Help went beyond my expectations! It was full of every emotion:  funny, sad, dramatic and entertaining.  There were moments when I was really laughing and there were times when I was close to sobbing – think a Hallmark commercial times 10!   It was by far, the best heartwarming movie I have seen in a long time.

On a personal note:  I have never worked as “the help” but I can relate to this movie in a roundabout sort-of way.  Living in Los Angeles for 14 years on the “Westside” – a somewhat affluent community encompassing Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, West L.A. to name a few,  I can say that I  had my little encounters with some sort of discrimination.  Although not a joking matter and not nearly as close to the storyline of The Help,  I joke around with some friends because it is funny to me that this type of discrim-otype (discrimination & stereotype) still exists.  Simply because I had a stroller and walked my daughter around the neighborhood during the working hours of 9-5, did not mean I was the nanny.  And simply because I cleaned the outside of the windows of my house, did not mean I was the help.  There is nothing wrong with keeping a clean house and being very caring to the little ones that stay home with the caretakers.  If only more people were like The Help, the world would be a better place.

Don’t miss this amazing movie.  It is 100% worth the ticket price.

The Help opens Wednesday August 10

    The same has happened to me many times. I was recently asked if I was my boy’s nanny at a park in Santa Monica and before I could answer she asked how much I charge a week? I couldn’t believe it. Yes… The Help had me sobbing in my chair and I was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the film.

    Thanks for the recommendation! I was planning to irrigate my wax-laden ears with a nettie pot I got at #Blogher11, but perhaps I’ll see The Help first, the crying phlegm might push the wax out. Sexy!
