"The Help" : Change Begins With A Whisper

Sneak Peek the new poster supporting director Tate Taylor's upcoming film adaptation of author Kathryn Stockett's 2009 novel "The Help", starring Emma Stone, Mike Vogel, Bryce Dallas Howard, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer and Allison Janney.

"...Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, 'The Help' stars Emma Stone as 'Skeeter', a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends’ lives—and a small Mississippi town—upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families.

"...Viola Davis stars as 'Aibileen', Skeeter’s best friend’s housekeeper, who is the first to open up—to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community.

"Despite Skeeter’s life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories—and as it turns out, they have a lot to say.

"Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly—and unwillingly—caught up in the changing times..."

Touchstone Pictures will release "The Help", August 12, 2011.
