The Help (2011)
I'm going to keep this one short, because I can't even describe how amazingly powerful this movie is. Seriously. One of the best movies I have ever seen.
An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960's decides to write a book detailing the African American Maid's point of view on the White families they work for, and their hardships they go through on a day to day basis. (description courtesy of IMDB)
This description does not even begin to warn you how emotionally engaging this film is. I sat there the whole time, completely involved in the story taking place in front of me.
Also, here is another indicator to tell you how involved you will be in the story:
I have never cried in a movie before. Honestly, never. Not one time. Because even though they're sometimes sad, they are never real to me.
I cried during this movie. It was real.
There. Go watch it. It is intense. It will be the most powerful movie experience you will have, probably ever. And if not, then you do not have human emotions. Or something else seriously wrong with you.
Okay, this post is ridiculous and doesn't nearly do such a terrific movie justice, but I just want to tell you to watch it now!!!!!!!
