VERY GOOD 1989 film centered on life, love and loss in Southern small town. Six talented ladies in primary roles, fun to see them, um, a bit older - especially enjoyed Sally Field, Dolly Parton, and Shirley MacLaine.
The varied flavors of Southern lady characters have some difficult happenings they need to help each other deal with as the film goes on - and need to be Steel Magnolias.

Take an all-star cast, hilariousness, sadness and a southern setting and you've got Steel Magnolias! The perfect "chick flick" if there ever was one, but that should be enjoyed by men and women alike. Dolly Parton is wonderful as is the rest of the cast. I love the way Steel Magnolias is written because even touching situations are presented with a bit of laughter. Don't miss out on this classic film!

I loved this movie of these wonderful women. It had sad times and happy times and funny times. Makes you wonder how you would handle cancer and still want to have a baby . it was too hard on this gal and she died. But her memories will always be remembered with her baby living with the family left behind.
