Wonderful, beautifully acted "dramedy" about a frustrated housewife (Kathy Bates) who is transfixed by the tales spun by an elderly woman (Jessica Tandy) living in a nursing home. The stories involve two independent women (Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary-Louise Parker) who ran a popular cafe in Alabama in the 1930s and whose friendship survived a number of incredible events. With Cicely Tyson. Extended version; 137 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital Surround; Subtitles: French, Spanish; deleted scenes; documentary; audio commentary; photo gallery; theatrical trailers.
