THE HELP

Based on "The Help"

by Kathryn Stockett

This painting is an adaptation of the novel The Help published in 2009.

 

The novel mixes over 500 pages of tension and comedy in the context of racial segregation in the United States in the 1960s and is organized around three female characters who are differentiated by skin color, age, function and language, Aibileen, Eugenia and Minny.

These residents of Jackson, Mississippi, get to know each other but also appreciate each other until they become sincere.

 

It was adapted for film in 2011 by Tate Taylor.
