8th Annual Summer Film Series
directed by Tate Taylor
The 2011 film adapted from the novel of the same name by Katheryn Stockett, is about a young white woman, Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan, and her relationship with two black maids during the Civil Rights Era. Skeeter is a journalist who decides to write a book from the point of view of the maids, exposing the racism they are faced with as they work for white families. In February 2012, the film received four Academy Award nominations including Best Picture, Best Actress, for Davis, Best Supporting Actress for Chastain, and a win for Best Supporting Actress for Spencer.
