Steel Magnolias – Edited

Based on a true incident of screenwriter Harling's mother and sister. The story is set in a small-town beauty shop near New Orleans, and spans several years in the lives of the shop's owner and her customers. Revolving around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in modern-day Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together there. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter's wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M'Lynn and Shelby (Drum's wife and daughter) depart for Truvy's to get their hair done for the wedding. "Just the sweetest thing," Annelle Depuy Desoto (who may or may not be married because her marriage may not be legal) is introduced to Truvy's customers as her new "glamor technician." While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, later in the picture, "If you can't find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me." Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.

Dove Review

This was a really heartfelt movie. It’s about a group of southern women who share their lives together. It has an all star cast and the women bring so much to their characters. It starts with a marriage and ends with a death. It’s a story of a few women who laugh and cry and give and take advice about their lives and help each other live each day to the fullest. Love and friendship are strong in this movie and I recommend it to every woman.
