DVD/Blu-ray Release: The Help

December 6, 2011

Today, Walt Disney Home Entertainment is releasing DreamWorks Pictures’ The Help on Blu-ray & DVD.  Carried beautifully by an excellent cast of actresses that includes standout work from Viola Davis and Jessica Chastain, this is one of the best and most moving films of the year.  We reviewed The Help when it opened on August 10th, our overall consensus was:

“With unforgettable characters and brilliant performances from the entire ensemble cast, director Tate Taylor’s pitch-perfect adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s bestselling novel The Help is an incredibly moving and beautifully realized film that deserves serious awards recognition.   **** (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes a “making of” featurette, several deleted scenes as well as a music video of Mary J. Blige’s deeply affecting song “The Living Proof.”

The Help is 146 minutes and rated PG.
