Change begins with a whisper.
Mind if I tell your story?

Set in the early 1960s, a time of racial upheaval in the USA, a young woman returns home from college, determined to become a writer. She decides to write some articles about the maids employed by her family and friends, and in the process stirs things up a bit in her conservative, racially-obsessed South. Things come to a head when the articles are turned into a book and published, with the author listed as ''Anonymous.'' The film has found favour amongst female audiences and generally had good reviews.
