The Help Blu-ray

Posted October 5, 2011 01:56 PM by Josh Katz

Walt Disney PicturesThis December, Dreamworks and Walt Disney Home Entertainment will bring The Help to Blu-ray. An adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel, the late-summer box-office hit stars Emma Stone (Easy A) as Skeeter Phelan, a young woman who begins to research the lives of the African-American maids serving her and her friends' households.

As Skeeter's investigations - aided in large part by the strong-willed Aibileen Clark (Viola Davis, Doubt) and the outspoken Minny Jackson (Octavia Spencer, Dinner for Schmucks) - grow in stature, the hardships they reveal threaten to unseat the accepted social norms of her 1960's Jackson, Mississippi community.

In addition to Stone, Davis, and Spencer, the film features an impressive supporting cast including Allison Janney (Life During Wartime), Bryce Dallas Howard (Spider-Man 3), Sissy Spacek (Get Low), Cicely Tyson (Tyler Perry's Diary of a Mad Black Woman), and Jessica Chastain (The Tree of Life).

Dreamworks and Disney are releasing The Help in two high-definition versions - a two-disc Blu-ray/DVD combo pack and a three-disc Blu-ray/DVD/Digital copy combo pack. Both versions present the film in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1 with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio sound track.

The discs also have a number of bonus supplements, such as:
  • Two deleted scenes introduced by director Tate Taylor: "A Senator's Son" and "Keep On Walkin'"
  • "The Living Proof" music video by Mary J. Blige
  • Blu-ray exclusive materials -
  • - The Making of The Help featurette
    - In Their Own Words: A Tribute To The Maids Of Mississippi featurette
    - Three additional deleted scenes introduced by director Tate Taylor: "Humiliated," "A Book About Jackson," and "Johnny's Home"
The Help streets on December 6th and is available for Amazon pre-order.

I saw this initially for Emma Stone and ended up really liking this movie a lot.

Bryce Dallas Howard was a mad genius in this.

I missed this in theaters. Looks as if I'll rent it. Viola Davis is always solid and I've been liking Jessica Chastain as well.

I heard this was pretty good, if a bit earnest but I couldn't really get a handle on what it's about. Is it a white guilt/white savior "do over" movie ala Driving Miss Daisy and Dances With Wolves?

Odd that they would include multiple releases just for a dcopy. Unless one comes in BD packaging and the other in a dvd box, it must be some kind of measure of the dcopy market. I already preordered the later when amazon had their early-bird promo. Hope the one I went with doesn't come in dvd packaging.

Just a tad sappy for me in a few parts. Just a few. But overall, a very solid and powerful story.
And Jessica Chastain is having a knock out year. She was my favorite in the movie.
