Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Steel Magnolias handles some mature material, including a mother watching her adult daughter die. Plus there are plenty of scatological epithets, and one woman curses a blue streak. The women also gossip relentlessly. Women may seem to rule the roost, but this is genteel Louisiana -- gender roles are firmly in place. Also, very few people of color appear. But this is ultimately an emotional, heartwarming story about friendship, family, and lifelong bonds.
