'The Help'

The tensions of entrenched bigotry and the encroaching civil rights movement play out between domestic worker and boss, in "The Help" and again in "Driving Miss Daisy." In the 1989 winner, a black chauffeur works for a stubborn old white woman, forging a bond that neither expected. In "The Help," more unlikely friendships are created when a stubborn young white woman helps a group of black maids find the courage to tell their stories.
