As it often happens in cinema and television, even the movie movie Help It draws inspiration from some true stories. The movie that airs tonight on Raiuno, in fact, has its roots in real events. As it is known, the film is based on the novel he wrote in 2009 Kathryn Stockett.

The true story of the movie The Help

What is a file The true story of the movie The Help Tonight Raiuno broadcast? We assume that the friendship between the director was the first to inspire the film Tate Taylor and Kathryn Stockett. The two grew up together in the 1970s in Mississippi and seem to have taken a cue from some real events to realize their artistic endeavours. However, the story told in The Help is not autobiographical, so we are not dealing with a true story. What has emerged, however, is that the writer’s in-depth research allowed her to learn about the facts that actually happened, and were somehow adapted and paraphrased specifically by Catherine Stockett in her novel.

Help, the plot of the movie aired tonight on Raiuno

“Help” It is the movie that will be broadcast tonight on Raiuno in prime time. Directed by Tate Taylor in 2011 and based on the novel of the same name by Kathryn Stockett, the cast includes Emma Stone as Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan, along with Viola Davis (Abilene Clark), Octavia Spencer (Minnie Jackson) and Jessica Chastain, who plays Celia Foot. Set in the 1960s, Mississippi, the film stars Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan, who has just graduated from college and dreams of becoming a best-selling writer. Her comrades are more inclined to family life, while Eugenia wants to achieve professional success at all costs. She started working with a local newspaper whose job it was to answer housewives’ mail: This job would put her in front of a racist society.

However, Eugenia has an idea that allows her to denounce what is happening in American society: to have black maids tell her life story, up to the point of writing a book, The Help, which would represent the true redemption of a black woman. The story told in The Help is not autobiographical, and therefore not entirely true: however, the author’s careful research allowed her to discover real events, which Kathryn Stockett then adapted for her narration.

The Help, True Story or Fiction? To inspire the plot was…

To prefer the transfer of the film’s story “Help” It was the friendship between the director Tate Taylor And Kathryn Stockett, author of the book of the same name. Both are childhood friends who grew up together in Jackson, Mississippi in the 1970s. The director actually said: “This was our childhood. Catherine and I didn’t grow up like the characters in the book because our era was the ’70s. But our two mothers were celibate and had to work. And they too, like the women of history, had to get help raising their kids. Catherine and I like to be called these women.” The ones who raised us as “companions.” I had the name Carol Lee and Dimitri for her.”

The director of the movie “The Help” was struck by the originality of the story: “When I read your book, I was hooked. I was struck by the veracity of this story about two women trying to make a difference in Mississippi in 1963. I called Catherine and said, ‘It’s amazing… you can’t give up… it will be released.’” If not, I’ll shoot a movie.” Thus, the characters are fictional but highly realistic and serve as a narrative medium to report on things that actually happened: a process that frightened America at the time that the book was initially rejected by many important publishers. Unlike other works that are also critical of some aspects of the United States, “Help” is still well received at home rather than abroad.
