CATEGORIES Movie NewsViola Davis is nominated for an Oscar for her portrayal of a maid in the 1960s film The Help, but she says her mother has yet to see the film because the experience could be "painful."
Davis revealed on today's CBS This Morning that she believes her mother is part of a generation of women who would rather forget some of the film's racial themes. "My mother has yet to see the movie... I think it's just because -- I think it's painful. You have a whole generation of women who don't want to be reminded of the past."
