STEEL MAGNOLIAS (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.1|5.0 Starsìììì

Steel Magnolias
has emotional impact and a certain charm that makes its audience feel like it got a front row seat into the inside circle of a group of friends who are well depicted by Julia Roberts, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, Shirley MacLaine, Sally Field, and Daryl Hannah. The acting is average to really good; portrayal of story is great.
