I have watched this movie many times, but I have never watched it all at once until now. I had caught parts here and there on TV, and I had seen all of it, but in a class today, I finally got to watch it in one sitting.
The acting is probably the best part of this movie. Viola Davis and Octavia Spencer are absolutely amazing in their roles. The portray, believable, sympathetic characters. Bryce Dallas Howard is just as good, playing a believable, but horrible character.
The writing is really good. The film keeps a good balance of humor and drama, and consistently moves at a steady pace. The other cinematic aspects are nothing special, but nothing bad either.
Overall, this is a really great look into the society of the past with some really great things. Everyone should watch this movie.
