The Help opens August 10th - and we have a giveaway!

So many good movies are coming out this summer! I'm really excited about this next one, and with all the huge big budget special effect blockbusters hitting the theaters, I want to make sure you don't miss it.

The Help was an unforgettable book which I recommend myself right here on the blog sidebar, not because I was asked to by anyone but because I read it and was blown away.

And soon the movie version of the #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon is going to hit the big screen. The Help movie, from Dreamworks so I have high hopes it will do the book justice, comes out Wednesday, August 10th.

The Help stars Emma Stone (“Easy A”) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (“Doubt”) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny. These three very different, extraordinary women, one a well-respected society women and the other two the 'colored' women employed by her privileged friends as 'The Help', come together in Mississippi during the 1960s over a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk.

From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.

In anticipation of The Help's opening day, one lucky reader will receive a prize pack with:

THE HELP t-shirt (available in adult female sizes of S, M, L, XL)
THE HELP pocket jotter & pen
THE HELP nail file/mirror

To enter this giveaway:
Just leave a comment on this post letting me know which summer movies you plan to see! Required for initial entry.

Additional entry methods:
Contest ends August 12th, the Friday after opening day for The Help movie.  USA/Canadian addresses only, please. 

Good Luck!

The prize package above is being provided by a Disney/Dreamworks publicity representative for the purposes of promoting The Help movie. Prizes will be shipped from the provider directly to the winner.
