[Highly rated reviewer]Great film.
Wonderful performances by Bryce Howard (Hilly Holbrook), Octavia Spencer (Minnie Jackson) and Sissy Spacek (Missus Walters) was hilarious.

Get y'own backBy a customer , 17 May 2013Initially lulled me into a 'lil ol' town feeling, this film certainly packed some racially prejudiced points by the end. Well acted by a host of 'unknowns', it was a pleasure to watch, though a little syrupy.
Excellent movieBy tayldn (27 reviews) from London , 10 May 2013Can't be many guys who watched this one on their own!! My wife won't watch movies of good books. Grrr! Anyway, I read it too. It's very loyal to the book both in story and in emotional tone and characterisation. Very respectful of the quiet dignity of the main characters- and I guess the millions who must have suffered similarly. Quite emotional but thought provoking.
Great movie!By a customer , 09 May 2013The best movie I've seen in ages. Made me laugh and cry in equal proportions. Bought the DVD. Wholly recommend
A great film to watchBy a customer , 24 Apr 2013I read the book first, and was told from others that the film is not as good (usually what happens). Although there are slight changes to the book it's a really great film, made me laugh and cry!
Too good for wordsBy a customer , 18 Apr 2013Such a beautiful story, you don't have to like history to enjoy this, I certainly don't! Be warned though, this is an extremely emotional film, I have never cried at a film like this before, I was practically sobbing! I felt outrage and hatred and sorrow, but I also felt happiness and joy as some heart warming things happened. A wonderful film, with a plot with depth, that I would recommend to anybody.
