For those of you who do not follow me on Twitter (@IAmAndreaBrown)…I am getting ready to embark on an amazing journey to the Cannes Film Festival (the largest film festival in the world) for an internship next month. “The Help” was one of the films I was hoping I would get a chance to see while in France, but unfortunately, it will not premiere at the festival. The film stars Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer & Bryce Dallas Howard. It’s an adaptation of an award winning novel of the same name, written by Kathryn Stockett.
I have mixed emotions about the film’s subject matter, but I’m still intrigued to see what some are already speculating will gain OSCAR buzz. The movie will be in theaters nationwide August 12th.
