Thumbs up or down for 'The Help' movie trailer?

April 21, 2011 |  1:21 pm

Kathryn Stockett's novel "The Help" has been a longtime favorite with readers, spending more than a year at or near the top of bestseller lists. This August, it'll come to screens, starring Emma Stone and Viola Davis with Sissy Spacek and more.

The trailer above seems to give a pretty full sense of what the movie will be like -- how it will represent 1960s Mississippi, what kind of accents the women have, how the good guys and bad guys (and women) will be portrayed. What do you think: thumbs up or thumbs down?
