A movie you MUST see!

Yesterday I saw the movie "The Help."  WOW it was good.  I will buy this movie when it comes out on DVD.  Excellent movie.  Probably a chick flick, no definitely a chick flick!
Anyhow, the gist of the movie... it's set during the early 60's in Jackson, Mississippi and is about African American Maids working in white households.  At times you will laugh until your sides  hurt.  At other times you will be horrified at how black women were treated, and you will want to cry at other times.  I would love to go and see the movie again today, and maybe even again tomorrow.  Wonderful movie.  And something I haven't experienced for some time, the theater was packed!  The showing before the one we went to was even more packed than the one we went to!  Sissy Spacek played a wonderful part and was too funny! Here's the main cast:
