I am so ready to be transported back to Truvy’s, and now we get to see Steel Magnolias on the BIG SCREEN!
It’s the Steel Magnolia’s 30th Anniversary. (Did you know the name is actually because women are delicate like a magnolia, but also tough as steel?)
Whoa, did I just say 30th anniversary? Am I that old?
I feel like it was just yesterday I was watching this with my mom on VHS. Or betamax. It might have been the betamax…
And the whole beauty shop gang, Shelby, Clairee, Anelle, Ouiser, M’Lynn and Truvy herself want to celebrate WITH US in Theaters on May 19, 21, and 22.
Oh my. this is going to be the girl’s night out of the year.
I am already planning it. I am thinking like we all get together for a big potluck dinner first, because that’s a totally steel magnolia’s thing to do.
Or we could maybe even go get our hair done. Real big and poofy-like.
I don’t know about you, but for me there was just something about that southern hospitality and sweetness mixed with the sass and spunk that makes Steel Magnolia’s one of my favorite movies of all time.
I think one of my favorite things about it is that it’s actually based on a true story.
The writer actually wrote it as a tribute to his sister that had recently passed, and it only took him ten days to do so.
What a cool tribute. It’s kind of neat to think she lives on in a film this iconic.
I can’t wait to hear those Truvy-ism’s on the big screen.
Yes! I can’t believe it’s the 30th anniversary! And that is just of the film.
The film is actually a retelling of the play.
Don’t forget, she likes to hire someone with a past. 🙂
