With The Help Popular On Netflix, Bryce Dallas Howard Recommends Watching Movies From Black Storytellers

For those that want context, The Help facilities on a younger, white aspiring journalist who returns to her hometown in Mississippi. While there, she types a relationship with two maids and is impressed to write down a e book on the racism they and their colleagues face on the job. While the movie was profitable when it first launched and earned Octavia Spencer an Oscar, the movie was and has been criticized for using a white savior narrative, falling into stereotypes and glossing over deeper themes of race.
