When 49-year-old Anne Kreamer saw a photo of her harshly dyed brown hair, she realized she wasn't kidding anyone. So she set out a plan - over the next few months she would give up her weekly visits to the salon and let her hair go its natural way. The result is 'Going Gray' - an exploration of that experience and a frank, funny, and unflinchingly wise investigation of aging today. Through interviews, experiments, and surprising personal acounts, Kreamer probes the issues behind two of the biggest fears mature women face - 'Can I be sexually attractive as a gray-haired middle-aged woman?' and 'Will I be discriminated against in the work world?' In searching for the balance between attrectiveness and authenticity, Kreamer offers a look at the politics and personal costs of our definition of 'aging gracefully'.
