(mbc.net) It is the 1980s and Truvy Jones (Dolly Parton) owns a small town beauty salon where gossip is exchanged by the minute.  Despite their love of scandal, the women are sister-like in their closeness.  The girls are happy for Shelby (Julia Roberts) in particular, who's getting made up for her upcoming wedding.  They crack jokes, but also show their immense compassion for one another when Shelby goes into a diabetic shock.

A year later the women will once again exhibit their ability to remain strong while maintaining a cheery exterior.  Tragedy strikes the group, but the southern belles remain resilient.

Steel Magnolias was nominated for an Oscar, two Golden Globes, and a People's Choice Award.  The picture earned $95 million at the box office.
