Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias update that Robert Harling’s is finally here.
All the lines you have loved from the original are back in this remake..
“Blush and bashful” are present, as is, “If you don’t have anything nice to say, sit next to me.” And hearing those iconic lines from the mouths of other actresses is odd, despite the women in question being of the highest caliber — Alfre Woodard and Phylicia Rashad.
Adepero Oduye and Rashad’s daughter, Condola Rashad, will also star. The contemporary remake of the film follows six Louisiana women, M’Lynn (Queen Latifah), Ouiser (Woodard), Clairee (Phylicia Rashad), Truvy (Scott), Annelle (Oduye) and Shelby (Condola Rashad), as they support each other through the trials and tribulations of life.
In an updated contemporary version, “Steel Magnolias” chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children — and hair and nails — all the important topics that bring women together.
