A different point of view

New ways to see things.
I recently watch the movie The Help, which is based on the book with the same title, written by Kathryn Stockett.
Although the story is set in an specific time and place, very well pictured by the way, what I like the most is the way it manages to connect to the viewer. The characters pop up and seem to get around as close to the place as if they were actually there, telling the stories of their difficult lives themselves.
I’ve also like the sense of compasion, courage and equity that is transmited during the whole movie. And, even though, injustice and discrimination are the key elements of the story, I liked how the piece keep sharing with the public that even through difficult times it’s possible to keep values such as pride, companionship, an open mind, and a certain sense of achievement and well being.
In the end, the characters are able to change some of the bad things that affect their lives and gain a new strenght and perspective of life that makes them look at the future with a much more confident heart.
