Description (from IMDb): An aspiring author during the civil rights movement of the 1960s decides to write a book detailing the African-American maid’s point of view on the white families for which they work, and the hardships they go through on a daily basis.
Wife: This is definitely a chick flick. I was surprised that my husband offered to watch it with me. I didn’t even ask him to; he volunteered. I had read the book. I even discussed it in my book club. I enjoyed the book and was excited about seeing what they did with it in the movie. I liked the movie and thought the story translated well on the big screen. It had the right spirit. I recommend you read the book. Then see the movie. Love, love, love the quote: “You is kind. You is smart. You is important.”
Husband: The history was definitely a lure. The emotions the movie evoked were genuine. The movie kept me welded to the screen. The actors were believable and I developed a sincere dislike for several of the characters.
