‘The Help’ by DreamWorks Studios. Does THE HELP ‘help’ or bash Civil Rights and/or Paid Servantry? On the Eve of its Release.


This is SO Forrest Gumpy with ‘The Help’ characters sitting out on that park bench as Tom Hanks (portraying ‘Forrest Gump’) did back in 1994. I am looking forward to seeing ‘The Help’ because as the Creator of: SKiN: Sacred Kinship in Nature™ - How 10 Beloved Plush Toys Redefine Race ©2009 (that has already won 2 awards and it is not even out on the market yet), I have a vested interest in the Topic. My Endeavor, SKiN™ has built a looming groundswell via my unique promotionals the last 2.5 years; therefore, it will be interesting to see how DreamWorks Studios portrays the Black & White Situation (that many of us we sweep under the rug – Persian or throw-rug as it depends on what a family can afford).

IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING THAT: We are now living in a very volatile era where civil rights may appear ‘civil’ on the outside with a ‘Black President and all,’ but the number of hate groups has never been this enormous, growing or pressing. Movies usually portray life as it should be…let’s hope a message is here that ‘HELPS’ (for lack of a better word) and shapes all our futures as my 7-part spec movie script & books do – no matter what SKiN tone we find ourselves in.

MY SUGGESTION: An acronym for HELP should be created to further advance the theme of this movie. BTW: The bottom line is: Forrest Gump is/was my favorite movie. Does ‘The Help’ have that kind of mesmerizing appeal to rank and rate up there with him?
