Event description

Description

Set in Mississippi during the 1960s, Skeeter (Emma Stone) is a southern society girl who returns from college determined to become a writer, but turns her friends' lives -- and a Mississippi town -- upside down when she decides to interview the black women who have spent their lives taking care of prominent southern families. Aibileen (Viola Davis), Skeeter's best friend's housekeeper, is the first to open up -- to the dismay of her friends in the tight-knit black community. Despite Skeeter's life-long friendships hanging in the balance, she and Aibileen continue their collaboration and soon more women come forward to tell their stories -- and as it turns out, they have a lot to say. Along the way, unlikely friendships are forged and a new sisterhood emerges, but not before everyone in town has a thing or two to say themselves when they become unwittingly -- and unwillingly -- caught up in the changing times.

Rated PG-13 for thematic material.

There is no charge to attend Race to the Movies. Everyone is welcome, but registration is required to reserve your seat (and space is limited). Concession will be open, but we suggest you grab dinner first. Bonus points for bringing a friend who doesn't look or think like you do. (Bonus points, unfortunately, have no cash value but do make you feel warm and fuzzy...because boy does the world need more friends who don't look or think alike.)

Race to the Movies is part of The Village Square's ongoing Created Equal series, offered in partnership with Leon County and through the support of the John S. Knight Foundation and the Community Foundation of North Florida. It's our hope that movies can open hearts, then open real dialogue across divides in our community.
