The Help is now the most watched movie on Netflix.  

As anti-racism protests continue across the US, media outlets and activists are suggesting that people better educate themselves on the United States’ systemic history of intolerance and oppression towards black people. 

Booklists and streaming guides have come in droves, but the popular 2011 period drama The Help seems to have risen above those recommended titles for many Netflix subscribers.

Netflix listed The Help as the most popular film on the service and the fifth most popular offering on the site overall.

Based on the novel of the same name written by author Kathryn Stockett, The Help tells the story of a white woman (played by Emma Stone) chronicling the injustices faced by black domestic workers in Jackson, Mississippi during the 1960s civil rights movement.

Star Viola Davis, who received a Best Actress nomination for her portrayal of The Help‘s Aibileen Clark at the 84th Academy Awards, said she regretted participating in the film in a 2018 interview with The New York Times.
