Do you ever dream of being something else?

The Help 「ヘルプ 〜心がつなぐストーリー〜」 (2011)

In the early 1960s, the treatment of African Americans in some southern US states is little changed from 100 years earlier. A society girl recently graduated from college and determined to become a writer decides to expose the racism faced by black maids, known as “the help.”   Change begins with a whisper.( 変化はささやく言葉で始まる。)

Have you lost your mind? 「気は確かか?」


Some things we just got to keep to ourselves. 「ことによっては、こちらだけの話にしておくべきだ」

ここでのkeep toは、「~を守る、~保つ、~から離れない」という意味で、keep to the left(左側通行)やkeep to the plan(計画に従う)のように用いられる。また、keep to oneselfで「ひとりぼっちでいる/仲間たちだけといる」という意味になる。
