For those who missed one of the best films of 2011 in theaters -- The Help -- there is good news today from Disney. The Help will be released on Blu-Ray, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand on December 6.
The Help became a surprise box office smash this past summer and has already been honored for awards including the Hollywood Film Awards for its ensemble cast. Emma Stone, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Sissy Spacek, Jessica Chastain and Bryce Dallas Howard (who dishes to us exclusively about The Help) came together and created movie magic with The Help’s big screen adaptation from the beloved bestseller by Kathryn Stockett.
Not many movies get as funny, heartfelt and inspiring as The Help achieved in its story of volatile race relations in the 1960s South. Stone’s character befriends some Jackson, Mississippi maids in an effort to bring their stories of hardship and racism to the masses through a collection of vignettes she chronicles in a book by the same name as the film.
