NABJ After Dark: Michael Baisden - Relationship Film: Do WOmen Know What They Want?

Location: 114 Lecture Hall

Best selling author and nationally syndicated radio personality Michael Baisden has made a career of provoking conversation about everything from Why Men Cheat to sexless marriages! Now, the outspoken relationship guru takes his raw style from the studio to the streets. No longer anonymous voices on the radio, would men be honest about their multiple relationships, interracial dating, and why they choose to date but not marry some women? And would women admit to having affairs with married men, take responsibility for their bad choices, and explain why they faked it? What started out as a cordial conversation with one simple question "Do Women Know What They Want?” exploded into a battle of the sexes that will have you laughing hysterically one minute and shouting at the screen the next!

DreamWorks Studios & the NABJ Film Festival Presents: THE HELP

 

Saturday, August 6, 2011

Tickets will be available onsite at convention, additional details coming soon.

Based on one of the most talked about books in years and a #1 New York Times best-selling phenomenon, "The Help" stars Emma Stone ("Easy A")as Skeeter, Academy Award®-nominated Viola Davis ("Doubt") as Aibileen and Octavia Spencer as Minny-three very different, extraordinary women in Mississippi during the 1960s, who build an unlikely friendship around a secret writing project that breaks societal rules and puts them all at risk. From their improbable alliance a remarkable sisterhood emerges, instilling all of them with the courage to transcend the lines that define them, and the realization that sometimes those lines are made to be crossed-even if it means bringing everyone in town face-to-face with the changing times.Deeply moving, filled with poignancy, humor and hope, "The Help" is a timeless and universal story about the ability to create change.

  • Grammy award winner, Mary J, Blige has recorded an original song for the film.
