The Characters on the Movie The Help

The characters on the movie The Help

The characters on The Help are an interesting assortment of women of all ages. After I finished reading the book, I was thrilled to discover these video character profiles of each of the main characters in the movie. I hope you enjoy them, too.

First, up is Skeeter. Skeeter is the young lady who has just graduated from journalism school and who wants to become a journalist, a feat not so easily accomplished in the 1960s so she takes her first job writing a cleaning column although she knows nothing about cleaning. She eventually decides to write the story of the maids of Jackson, Mississippi.

Next up is Aibileen, one of the two main maids in the movie. She is going through life, getting by until she finds a new interest in sharing her life stories on paper.

Then there is Minnie, the other maid who plays a huge role in this movie. Minnie is a very strong woman who decides to help Skeeter and Aibileen write the book. She has no problem saying what is on her mind.

Finally, we have Hilly. Hilly is the president of the women's association in Jackson, Mississippi. She's a strong personality of another sort - used to getting her way and having people follow whatever she does. She's also backward thinking; she wants things to stay as they are rather than have things go forward and improve.

Of course, this is a story with many important characters. To fully appreciate them, you should read the book and watch the movie.

See you
at the movies!
