Eagle Cinema: The Help

Friday, February 2 from 8pm in the Glasshouse

Come enjoy a movie and snacks while we watch the movie “The Help” and have engaging conversation about the movie after. The Help. The Help is already considered a classic, nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, winner of a Golden Globe Award, and two awards at the Hollywood Film Festival. After the movie, there will be a discussion on the setting of the movie, providing an inside view of how our country has evolved since then and continues to evolve today. Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, a southern society girl returns from college determined to become a writer, but 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. Aibileen, Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up, to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories—and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Starring Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, Emma Stone, and Jessica Chastain. 2011; 137min.
