The Help, An Excellent Movie

It is 8:30 PM and raining very hard as I write this journal entry as Hurricaine Irene is almost here.  We were able to go out to Cunningham Park in the morning, but as it started to rain lightly at about 12 noon we walked over to the local multiplex to see The Help.  This was a movie suitable for an older audience,  Skeeter Stone, the main character, is a southern society girl who just returned from college and wants to establish herself as a writer.  The film is set in 1963in Jackson, Mississippi as the civil rights march on Washington, murder of Medgar Evers, and Kennedy assasination are discussed.  She decides to write a book about  black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families.  The movie featured Jackson by Johnny Cash and June Carter and Don't Think Twice by Bob Dylan.
