A beautiful, bittersweet human comedy set in America’s deep-south, it’s the story of six very special friends bonded together by their mutual triumphs and tragedies.

Despite their differences, beautiful and impulsive Shelby, her strong-willed mother, M’Lynn, beauty parlour owner Truvy, elegant widow Clairee, sharp-tongued Ouiser and mousy newcomer Annelle enjoy a friendship that spans the boundaries of age and status. Sharing each other’s strength and loyalty, these six remarkable women survive the cycles of life, birth, death and marriage to emerge stronger, closer and still laughing.

The funniest story to ever make you cry…
