I liked this, but I wasn't as in love with it as everyone else seemed to be. It's a good story, about a young woman, Skeeter (played by Emma Stone) in the 1960's. She's trying to get a start as a writer but isn't taken too seriously. She starts to notice the world of the black maid, who is usually closer to the children of the white woman than the mother herself. She builds a friendship with two of the women and starts to record their story. Not everyone wants the story to be told! The acting was good and the story was good, but there wasn't anything that made me think, "Wow, this is a great movie." I give it 2 1/2 stars.
