"The quintessential story of family and friendship in a unique Southern sisterhood," production notes state, "Steel Magnolias is a skillfully crafted portrayal of eccentricity, loyalty and love set in a small-town beauty parlor. The title suggests that although they appear delicate as magnolias, the main female characters are tough as steel."
