Emma Stone character profile from The Help

THE HELP - Emma Stone

Introducing “Skeeter”. She’s smart, ambitious and keen to push boundaries.

Walt Disney Australia and New Zealand has sent over a character profile from DreamWorks’ forthcoming feature The Help.

Synopsis: Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, The Help stars Emma Stone (Easy A) as Skeeter, Academy Award®–nominated Viola Davis (Doubt) as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minnie—three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed—even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.


The Help is released on 1 September 2011 in Australian from Walt Disney Studios Australia and New Zealand.
