The following eleven-page study guide film packet is used to accompany the Tate Taylor-directed 2011 period drama film "The Help" that stars Viola Davis, Emma Stone, Octavia Spencer, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Jessica Chastain. It can be used in an English, film studies, or media studies classroom. The first page contains a list of cast and crew and a background and introduction on the film from Wikipedia. The second page is a page that allows viewers to jot and take down their own notes.

The eleventh page contains discussion questions on the characterization, conflicts, feminism, ideologies, plot, and themes.
