“The Help” — several thumbs up

The Woman and I saw “The Help” last night. Guess which of us dragged the other to see it?

Normally I don’t enjoy movies about the bad old days of Jim Crow, because I feel a tiny bit of the helplessness its victims must have felt. But this one is well worth watching.

That actress you think you’ve seen but can’t place? That’s Jessica Chastain, who looks enough like Julia Roberts a few years ago to create that deja vu feeling. And the crazy old lady is Sissy Spacek.
