Finally the long awaited release of The Help on DVD and Blu-Ray takes place today! As this was definitely my favourite movie (and book) of 2011, I am going to be one the first to get my hands on a copy of this great film.

Here are a few stills from the movie…

Have you watched The Help? If so, what did you think? If not, best you do and soon. It is a must see! Such a great story and so pertinent for South Africans as much of the storyline mirrors our own circumstances regarding domestic “help”.
