Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood [VHS] 
Dispatched from and sold by stephensmith_426.
Sidda Lee Walker (Sandra Bullock) is a successful playwright living in New York City. One day, after falling out with her mother Vivi (Ellen Burstyn), Sidda Lee finds herself kidnapped and taken back to her home state of Louisiana. The kidnappers are her mother's old friends Teensy (Fionnula Flanagan), Necie (Shirley Knight) and Caro (Maggie Smith) - collectively known as the Ya-Ya Sisterhood - and they resolve to tell Sidda Lee the truth about her mother's hard life.
Grab your tissues and send the guys away, because Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood is the most pedigreed chick-flick since Steel Magnolias. You can tell by the title and the novelish names of the Louisiana ladies from Rebecca Wells' precious bestseller.
First there's Sidda (Sandra Bullock), a successful playwright still wrestling with her manipulative mother, Vivi (Ellen Burstyn), after a traumatic upbringing. Then there's long-time friends Teensy (Fionnula Flanagan), Necie (Shirley Knight), and Caro (scene-stealer Maggie Smith), from Vivi's secret club of "Ya-Ya Priestesses", together since childhood and determined to heal the rift between Sidda and her mum. Through an ambitious flashback structure (including Ashley Judd as the younger Vivi), screenwriter and first-time director Callie Khouri (who wrote Thelma & Louise) establishes a rich context for this mother-daughter reunion. There's plenty of humour to temper the drama, which inspires Bullock's best work in years. Definitely worth a look for the curious, but only fans of Wells' fiction will feel any twinge of loyalty. --Jeff ShannonSee all Product description

I like the leading lady. The plot was dramatic and thrilling. The filming technique is breathtaking. I think I really fell in love with this movie, and I'll watch it a few times.Read more
This one is a waste of time and is a rubbish movie. Has Sandra Bullock in it which is why I bought it and is not up to her usual other movie standards. Sorry I bought this.
