The Help - "You is kind.... You is smart.... You is important." That is the most memorable line from the movie The Help and one of the most memorable lines in a movie ever. I love these words from The Help.
Did you ever dream of being something else? This is an important question in the movie The Help. Have you ever dreamed of being something else? Most of us have. That's Aibileen Clark, played by Viola Davis (best actress nominee), in her kitchen and she is the one who was asked the question "Did you ever dream of being something else?"
This is a look at the houses from "The Help" depicting the 1960s. The Help was nominated for Best Picture and was set in Jackson, Mississippi where some filming did take place, but mostly was filmed in Greenwood and Clarksdale, Mississippi. The Help is based on the novel by Kathryn Stockett and written for the screen and directed by Tate Taylor.
Eugenia (Skeeter) Phelan (played by Emma Stone) fresh out of college and full of spunk gets her first job as Ms. Myrna answering a cleaning advice column. Her mother just wants her to get married and can't understand why she wants to have a career as a writer.
The Help - Hilly Holbrook House. You might remember the The Help movie scene where there are multiple toilets strewn across the lawn. It is The Johnson residence at 413 Grand Blvd. in Greenfield, Mississippi.
Hilly's house interior is prim and proper appearing-like her. I say appearing because there is not much proper about Hilly.
The baby blue bathroom with flowered wallpaper in Hilly Holbrook's house and Hilly fits right in with her flowered dress. Hilly is played by Bryce Dallas Howard who is the daughter of beloved actor, Oscar-winning director, Ron Howard- I did not know that, did you? We all love to hate Hilly throughout the movie for her backstabbing, snottiness, manipulation, and blatant lying to name a few reasons why.
The foyer in the Hilly house and Minny Jackson, played by Octavia Spencer who won for Best Supporting Actress.
Missus Walters, played by Sissy Spacek, comes on the scene dressed in a coat in the summer. Lovin her netted hat and sunnys here. Want to see more? ¸.•*¨`*•✿
