The Reel Review

A+

This civil rights era period piece set in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi is the story about an enterprising young writer (Emma Stone) who convinces the town’s black maids to spill the beans on what life really is like working for the town’s white women. A cleverly written story and an exceptionally strong supporting cast (Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Jessica Chastain, Dallas Bryce Howard, Allison Janney) highlights an important era in American civil rights history, serving up the perfect balance of drama, comedy, and Minny’s famous chocolate pie.
