Two black maids and one young white women start to chafe against the bonds of their society as the civil rights movement starts to gain momentum. Sensitively and carefully done, the women’s voices are beautifully delineated and there are many hilarious moments as well as poignant scenes. Some of the plot seems a little far-fetched, but in general very well done, telling the story of an important part of history and showing how the personal can be political and Political.
