Truvy’s Beauty Parlor in a small Louisiana town is where the women gather to share their gossip and troubles while being pampered by warm-hearted Truvy and her young assistant, Annelle. How can M’Lynn deal with her diabetic daughter, Shelby, who is determined to live her dream of marrying and having a family, despite the risk to her health? How is the unlikely friendship between grouchy and eccentric widow Ouiser and life-affirming Clairee held together? How does Truvy cope with the escapades of the men in her family, while Annelle transforms from shy newcomer, to party girl and then Christian revivalist? With laughter and tears, with determination of steel, and the power of true friendship.
This "dramedy" was an acclaimed 1989 film with Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Parton and Shirley MacLaine.
