Spent a lovely afternoon chilling in the movie theater trying to avoid this dreadful record heat. And I got to watch a lovely movie--The Help. I don't very often recommend the movie over the original novel but this one was done very well. Even if you haven't read the novel, go see the movie. It's a great story of a time period in our American history we aren't especially proud of, and it's a great story of friendship and helping each other. This blog title is a quote from the movie; honestly I didn't remember it being such a big line in the novel, but the line was a central theme of the movie.
So congrats Hollywood--you got this one right.
