Synopsis

1960s Mississippi. Southern society girl, Skeeter, returns from college determined to become a writer and turns her friend's lives upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges as everyone in town becomes unwittingly – and unwillingly - caught up in the changing times.
