1999 Certificate: 15


Steel Magnolias goes to the seaside for this appealingly cast chick flick. Kate Capshaw - Mrs Steven Spielberg to you - is the single mum who discovers an unsigned love letter which stirs the imagination of her close-knit community. Blythe Danner, Ellen DeGeneres and Geraldine McEwan cluck around entertainingly while Tom Everett Scott and Tom Selleck do well to make themselves heard over the fuss. Look out for an unbilled Jack Black trying to do the same.
