A tale of two friendships, one which existed several decades ago and another in the present day. Evelyn Couch (Kathy Bates) is a middle aged woman who has seen a son off to college and now finds herself trying to get her husbands attention again. One day while visiting a relative in a home she meets Mrs Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy) who begins to tell her the story of two old friends, Ruth and Idgie. Evelyn's visits become a regular occurrence as Mrs Threadgoode continues her story and the two women become good friends which helps Evelyn come to terms with her life and mid-life crisis.

At the same time we are treated to the story of Ruth and Idgie. Ruth has been asked by Idgie's mother to help tame her wild daughter and the pair form a strong bond which gets tested several times over the years by racism, an abusive husband and illness.

This is a beautiful movie about the wonders friendship. I've watched it many times and still love it. Several `laugh out loud' moments but also those which will bring a tear to your eye no matter how many times you watch it.

A must see for everyone.

This film has it all what it takes to make a really great movie. It is well done, an impressive cast, deep emotions, drama, deep friendship, laughter and never in a tacky, unrealistic way. One can relate to these characters very easily. The switch between past and present works great. I was hooked from the very first moment. I share the previous reviewer's view that one can see it several times and not getting bored rather seeing different aspect of this excellent movie more clearly. This is "toowanda"... see the movie and you will understand what it means. For now 5 stars would actually not enough to give to this movie. Just see it!!! You really must!!

Every time I watch this wonderful film, I see something new.

It begins with Evelyn Couch (Kathy Bates), an unhappy housewife - trampled on by almost everyone she meets - going to visit her husband's aunt in a nursing home. We don't meet the aunt, but the impression given is that to call the aunt "cantankerous" is to put it mildly. And she doesn't like Evelyn. While waiting for her husband, Evelyn meets Ninny Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy), who - over the course of several meetings - tells Evelyn the story of the hamlet of Whistle Stop, now a ghost-town, and the people who lived there.

The main story Ninny shares with Evelyn centres around tomboy Idgie Threadgoode (Mary Stuart Masterson), and Ruth Jamison (Mary Louise Parker), and their relationship and the complications that follow. Meanwhile, learning of Ruth and Idgie encourages the repressed Evelyn to take charge of her own life in ways that vary from the small, to the sublime, to the side-splittingly funny.

The performances are wonderfully strong, bringing each character to three-dimensional life. Jessica Tandy as Ninny is the kind of grandmother-figure we'd all want: spry, with a twinkle in her eye and a story to tell. Kathy Bates as Evelyn begins as a pitiable woman but - after passing through a wild phase, "Towanda!" (it'll make sense once you've seen the film!) - she grows into a more mature, stronger woman. Mary Stuart Masterson portrays Idgie as a free-spirit who grows into responsibility. Mary Louise Parker plays Ruth with quiet strength and dignity. And we can't forget Cicely Tyson's turn as Sipsey, the wry cook at the Whistle Stop Café.

At it's heart, this is a story about life, and about the small triumphs and tragedies that befall us.

You could, possibly, categorise this as a chick-flick.
But if you do, do not dismiss it as such.
One of my all-time favourite movies along with The Godfather 1&2; Pulp Fiction; and Betty Blue, to name but a few (for reference).

A middle-aged woman (Kathy Bates) finds herself becoming lost in a mid-life crisis.
Taking pity on an old lady (Jessica Tandy) in a nursing home, she is told the story of 'Idgie Threadgood' (Mary Stuart Masterson).
The two quickly become friends and news of Idgie's alter-ego T'Wanda becomes an inspiration for Bates' character and who begins to assume some of her strength and spirit when faced with 'modern-day' challenges.

Two touching and charming stories told simultaneously but set in two ages, generations apart.
Provides amusement, dismay, and excitement, all the way to the end.

Guy Warning:-
I'm a big bloke and I've watched this a dozen times or more.
Cry every time.
If watching with your lady have some Kleenex hidden a safe distance away to avoid embarrassment.

Most of the reviews here are either 4 or 5 star and that's about right. The film has an almost impossible job in attempting to cover the scope of the original and delightful book. In the main it succeeds very well, the casting is wonderful and Jessica Tandy is superb. Only one gripe, at a key point it strays from the book in a way that dilutes the power of the story, understandable but done for a cinema audience.

The first version that I purchased (ITV Special Edition) had a very poor soundtrack requiring a near 100% increase in our normal listening volume. This gave rise to distortion and detracted enormously from what otherwise is a very pleasant film. This copy was returned and replaced with a version released by Spectrum Leisure - huge improvement
