Plot Summary
In 1960s Mississippi, Southern society girl Skeeter (Emma Stone) returns from college with dreams of being a writer. She turns her small town on its ear by choosing to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent white families.

But as the pair continue the collaboration, more women decide to come forward, and as it turns out, they have quite a lot to say.
