Check out the trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s “The Help.” If you’ve come here looking for the latest in our deconstruction series, it’s the post right before (shown below) this one.
This trailer is two and half minutes of pure fun, especially if you’ve read the novel and have been following this deconstruction. All four parts of the novel are represented — a cool challenge, see if you can recognize them — as well as the implication of the two major plot points. At a glance it seems like a somewhat light treatment in comparison to the book, but the overall weight of the film is every bit as ambitious.
The film opens in August. Enjoy.
