Last night I was able to go see The Help with Erika. It was SUCH a good movie- about racial segregation specifically with woman (moms)and their maids and one young woman's stand against it. Skeeter (the main character) took a chance to stick out in society by befriending some black maids and exposing their mistreatment at a time when it was actually against the law to do so! I thought it was wonderful. There were several curse words but other than that it was GREAT! oh, and lots of smoking- I cannot believe how much people smoked back in the olden days- thank goodness it has died down much from back then. Of course I cried and laughed a lot. Erika commented after the movie how emotional I am and I really am- it doesnt take much to get a laugh from me or tears for that matter:)
I just want to say that I am so thankful for Erika's friendship- we have known each other for 4 years now and she is definitely a Life-long friend! We each have different personalities but in my mind, it balances us out pretty perfectly. I love that we can hang out easily together and talk about anything. Love ya, Erika!
And on a side note, I just LOVED the fashion from that movie!
All the skirts and little bows in their hair and funky tops!
It was great!
