As I expected “Steel Magnolias” was wonderfully written and well preformed. The cast worked great together and their acting capabilities complimented each other without prejudice. The revised script gave a warm feeling to what a southern African –American family would exemplify with regards to love, family bond, and friendship. Although, there were many messages for us to gain from, the one in particular that I wanted to make mention of is acceptance!
Understanding that we all are imperfect beings should lead us to the awareness that we all make mistakes in various areas of life, relationship and sisterhood. It was quite evident that all of the ladies suffered some type of life disappointment and each one dealt with it in their own way. Nevertheless, each of them knew the other’s struggle and accepted their friend just as she was while allowing room for growth. I would love to hear what message you gathered from the film….don’t be shy…communicating is good for the SOUL!
P.S. If you had to choose a character that illustrated you within your circle who would it be?
