“The principal pleasure of the movie is in the ensemble work of the actresses, as they trade one-liners and zingers and stick together and dish the dirt...The moments work.”
“No use fighting it. This laugh-getting, tear-jerking, part-affecting, part-appalling display of audience manipulation is practically critic-proof…shamelessly entertaining.”
—Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
Adapted by Robert Harling from his own long-running play and directed by Herbert Ross, Steel Magnolias (1989) is a lively comedy laced with tragedy, featuring a gallery of superb performances from the likes of Julia Roberts, Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Olympia Dukakis, Dolly Parton, and Daryl Hannah. All are small-town Louisiana Southern belles who regularly gather in a haven-like beauty salon to let down their hair both literally and figuratively, offering each other warm moral support along with plenty of sass-and-tease. Featuring a gorgeous Georges Delerue score, available here as an isolated track.
Enjoy the extensive Julie Kirgo liner notes and film art packaged with the Blu-ray disc.
