Understaning one's parent means understand oneself better - the power of friendship,
This review is from: Divine Secrets Of The Ya Ya Sisterhood [DVD]  (DVD)
Understanding one's parent is a difficult issue but one has to do it because it tells you much about yourself. I could sympatize very much with the basic story as I "discover" as well secrets about my parents which helped me to understand them better. But this is as well a movie about friendship, friendship which last a life time and friends who are there and act in the most difficult of times. But it is not a sad or too deep a movie. There is enough to lighten it up, but the message does not get lost. I enjoyed it very much!!
But I have to admit as much as I love Maggie Smith she is not right in the role of a Southern American. She is simply too British for this.
Otherwise an enjoyable movie.
