After reading that ^^^^ I am not surprised at all to learn that the movie is NOT about the refugees.

Horrible actress. Not the least bit endearing or genuine in the trailer.

Yes. Blind Side made the boy sound like a huge wussy who needed white adoptive mommy to push him into doing it.
The Help showed one of the maids as a loser who never had any big aspirations in life and the other maid only could do anything because her white bosses helped her.
If anyone is interested, read The Help, it is a great book and the blacks actually are much more interesting and have a lot more personality than that ridiculous movie AND they had bigger dreams and did things without needing the white person's hand guiding them.



The book was written by a white woman and I thought it was damn awful and depicted black women just as terribly as you describe the movie.

@Epitome, yes it was written by a white woman, but the black characters on the book were different than the movie: Abi actually wanted to do some writing to continue what her son never finished, but in the opening scene of the movie, the white girl asked her if she ever wanted to be anything else in her life besides a maid, and she said no.
The chubby maid (forgot her name) never apologized to Hilly, she just brought the cake and watched her eat, and she left her husband after speaking to Abi, not because her white bosses said they would take care of her.

And in the movie the white girl's housekeeper was fired because of racism, not because the daughter of the maid barged into the house.

Can't stand her. She spoke at my schoo (I went to her alma mater) and she was so snotty. I like legally blonde, though
