While on holiday back in June I read a book called The Help, about an American town in 1960s Mississippi. The book tells the story of black African-American maids who care for the children and clean the houses of white people, and also the perspective of a white girl who see’s that things need to change.
The Help was made in to a film, and released here in the UK in October – so off I went to go and see it. While the book delves a bit deeper in to the issues of the time, I did really enjoy the film. However, this is not a film review blog it is a sewing blog, so I am going to run away from the self-inflicted pressure I’m feeling to give a detailed account of the pro’s and con’s of the film, and show you some pretty pictures instead…
As well as the big, no HUGE, hairstyles, I wanted to show you some of the costumes as I thought they were amazing!
