Funny, wise and richly human, this immensely moving film features a brilliant all-star cast, including Queen Latifah, Phylicia Rashad, Adepero Oduyem, Condola Rashad, Jill Scott and Alfre Woodard.

Remaking the play and movie "Steel Magnolias" with an all-black cast was the idea of the playwright, Robert Harling.
