Watched the trailer for this film and thought it was going to be really rubbish. I watched the film and have now completely changed my mind. I thought it was really good and thought the characters acted really well. Based on a book by Kathryn Stockett. Tate Taylor and Kathryn Stockett were childhood friends. In 2012 Octivia Spencer won a Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Supporting Role. She also won a Bafta for Best Supporting Actress.
