    Go see this movie. This is the first movie in a while that I watched (got tix to advance screening here in Victoria), where someone didn’t have superpowers or there wasn’t excessive violence etc.. This was a great movie and worth Oscar buzz. Bryce Dallas Howard has jumped a huge leap forward in her acting! There is a scene, well many scenes with racism, but one in particular where Allison Janney (who please Emma Stone’s mother) was telling how she let her long time maid and clearly a family friend go. It was heart wrenching and I just couldn’t stand to watch it. You have to have no heart. Even as an actor I do not know how you could have done that scene!
    Go see this movie. The theatre I was in was gasping at parts and we all were talking about it as we were leaving. This movie will get you talking even though it’s set in the past, it will make you think today.

    Please go see this movie – you will NOT be disappointed. You will laugh & you will cry. It is such a moving story of courage and love – I have always been taught that skin color should make no difference – we are to love all people. Yet in the 70’s when I was in grades 6-8, I had a friend who was a boy and he was black and everyone, even teachers didn’t think that was a “good” thing. I do not understand what a simple difference skin color should make, maybe some day someone will explain it to me.

    A brilliant motion picture. No wonder it’s packing in the audiences. Could be an Oscar here.
