Southern film with feeling at library

Posted on: January 7, 2018

If you aspire to be a writer, the next movie at the Murphy Library answers that age-old question of what to write about. Just look around your hometown.

This Thursday, January 11 at 6 p.m. the library is showing The Help, a film with feeling about a young Southern woman named Skeeter who finishes college at Ole Miss during the 1960’s and returns to her hometown to start a writing career. Running time is 146 minutes and the film is rated PG-13. Starring Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Cicely Tyson and Octavia Spencer.

Skeeter (Stone) soon realizes the African American women who work for the white families in her town have stories to tell. She writes them down and along the way makes new friendships with the maids while trying to keep her childhood friends. Nevertheless, these are changing times and everyone is caught up in them.
