The trailer of the “Steel Magnolias” remake was recently released. The original movie, which was produced in 1989, included some of the most famous actresses in Hollywood. This year, other highly popular stars replace them in the same heartbreaking life story.
“Steel Magnolias”, released in 1989, revolves around six women who share a tragic story. Shelby, a young and fragile woman, is the daughter of M’Lynn, an overprotective mother who is trying to deal with the illness of her only child. Shelby has diabetes. Their lives are fuller and more joyful due to the presence of their friends, Ouiser, Clairee, Truvy and Annelle. The action revolves around Truvy’s beauty salon. When Shelby becomes pregnant, M’Lynn sees the danger it poses.
If you haven’t seen the original “Steel Mangolias” we advise you to take the time and see it, so you can later compare it to the new one. If you already have, you are probably expecting, just like us, to compare the performances of the old and the new cast, and notice other storyline differences that might appear.
