"Laughter through tears is my favorite emotion." Truvy, Steel Magnolias
I could dedicate a blog solely to this movie. My mother is from the South, and I learned the beauty parlor is not just where you go to get your hair "fixed," but is a valuable part of the community. I love watching these women squawk at each other, gossip, share secrets and deal with hardships all while getting their streaks done. The cast of women is extraordinary. It is sad, heartwarming and funny. I love the way Steel Magnolias tells the story of women's lives in a everyday sort of way.
