Movie Review

I usually only write about health topics, but thought I would take a break on that for this post.  It seems like tons of people have common colds, bronchitis, sore throats, congestion, etc. right now.  I've heard of a lot of people taking sick days from work and staying at home for the day.  If this is you, I'm recommending a movie for you to watch!  I usually don't have lots of time to watch movies and it's rare that I come across a movie that I really like.  A friend recommended "The Help" to be and I'm really glad I watched it.  It takes place down South during the 1960's.  The plot of the story is a young college graduate interviews black maids and records their stories in a book that she wants to have published.  Overall, it was a really fantastic film and fit for teenagers and on up to adults to watch.  I have not seen a movie that was made this well in a very long time.  The sets were realistic and the acting was fantastic.  It also helped teach me about a time period I knew little about.  If you're looking for a good movie to watch on a rainy afternoon, I definitely recommend this one.
