In the movie based on Kathryn Stockett's bestselling novel of the same name, the actress plays 'Skeeter Phelan', a young Southern society girl returned from college in Jackson, Mississippi during the 1960's. No longer able to ignore the racism surrounding her, the aspiring writer wants to give the African-American maids that work for her white friends and family a chance to voice their experiences, by writing a tell-all book from their perspective.
