Moviefone Mama Says: Mothers (and fathers) be warned -- this film will require the use of a Kleenex, sleeve, or concessions' napkin. But don't let the tissue requirement keep you away, because for once a movie is not only as worthy as the book on which it's based, it's a fantastic way for families with middle and high-schoolers to discuss prejudice and humanity and what it means to be an American. The performances in Tate Taylor's adaptation of Kathryn Stockett's debut novel are divine; there's not a weak link in the cast, from the ambitious and slightly misfit Stone to the please-give-her-an-Oscar Davis to the evil-with-a-smile Howard and the hilariously mischievous Spencer. Go for the cast, stay for the story, and leave feeling like a good cry and conversation.
