Notes from the Manager
This strip came out a little weirder than I had intended, even…
Here's a trailer for The Help, which stars Viola Davis, Bryce Dallas Howard, Octavia Spencer, and Emma Stone:
Here's the synopsis for the fictional movie (adapted from a novel):
Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, a southern society girl returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a small Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen, Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up -- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories -- and as it turns out, they have a lot to say.
UPDATE (8/31): For a little more context about the controversy this strip brings up, read this New York Times editorial on the film.

Be warned: this is really a three minute clip from the movie with a 1-minute trailer at the end. AND there is one or two spoilery things that you may not want to see, if you want to go into the theater with as close to a blank slate as possible.
However. If that doesn’t bother you, it is pretty awesome. The action we see here is a lot of fun.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp, Hayley Atwell, Robert Redford and Samuel L. Jackson. It hits theaters on April 4, 2014.
