Before I share the featurette with you, my friends, I want to tell you right now that I have an assignment for you: READ THE BOOK The Help. I read this book on my flights en route to LA last Wednesday and oh gosh, its awesome. It really, truly is. I laughed aloud and I wept, right there on the planes. (Apologies, fellow passengers, who clearly thought I was off my rocker).
But I want you all to read it so we can dish on it. And, it will help you to get even more excited for the movie’s release date on August 12th.
I can’t spill any details, and won’t give spoilers or anything, but I will tell you this: during the screening we had at Dreamworks last Friday morning, I was absolutely enthralled with this movie. It has been at least 10 years since I felt so much during a movie. The casting for this movie is amazing. The story itself is awesome, the screenplay is great, and the actors simply amazing. I laughed and I cried, and then I cried some more. Its awesome. I can’t wait to go again when this comes out in theaters.
Don’t wear mascara, and definitely don’t wear false eyelashes when you go see the movie. You may end up with raccoon eyes like I had. [click to continue…]
