Steel Magnolias: 30 Minutes of Wonderful


Last night, I had a chance to watch the remake of the 80’s classic “Steel Magnolias” which starred Queen Latifah, Alfre Woodard, Phylicia Rashad and the sultry songstress Jill Scott. The movie tells the story of a young woman named Shelby who is played by Condola Rashad and her battle with Diabetes. Eventhough Shelby knew having a child would put her life in danger, her motto was “I would rather have thirty minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”

Shelby’s mother M’Lynn, played by Queen Latifah, decided to giver her daughter her kidney even though she warned her daughter to never have a baby. The movie was a very heartfelt movie that showed the close-knit group of friends supporting M’Lynn’s and here family in the their time of need. In the end, Shelby lost her battle with Diabetes and Queen Latifah once again showed us why she is one of the best actresses in the biz…

BTW: I didn’t know Condoloa Rashad was a Tony Award Winner and The daughter of Phylicia Rashad.
