Full of life and brimming with laughter, Steel Magnolias directed by Herbert Ross (The Sunshine Boys, The Goodbye Girl, The Turning Point) is a warm and witty celebration of friendship, Southern-style. Julia Roberts (Mystic Pizza), in an Academy Award nominated performance, portrays a vibrant, young diabetic whose decision to have a baby may cost her life. Academy Award winner Sally Field (Best Actress, Norma Rae and Places In The Heart) stars as her mother, torn between love and anger. Shirley MacLaine (Academy Award Best Actress, Terms Of Endearment), Dolly Parton (Nine To Five), Daryl Hannah (Splash) and Olympia Dukakis (Academy Award Best Supporting Actress, Moonstruck) are the four loyal friends who support them with buoyant humor and unfailing grace. Based on Robert Harling's semi-autobiographical hit play, Steel Magnolias is a tribute to the power of love...and laughter.
