Academy Award-winners Kathy Bates and Jessica Tandy star with Mary Stuart Masterson and Mary-Louise Parker in this inspiring drama adopted from Fannie Flagg's best-selling novel. When an unhappy housewife (Bates) befriends a lady in a nursing home (Tandy) she hears a remarkable tale of laughter, devotion and a special friendship that defies all obstacles in this heart-warming film from acclaimed director Jon Avnet.
Kathy Bates stars as an unhappy wife trying to get her husband's attention in this amusing and moving 1991 screen adaptation of Fannie Flagg's novel Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe. After befriending a lonely old woman (Jessica Tandy), Bates hears the story of a lifelong friendship between two other women (Mary Stuary Masterson and Mary-Louise Parker, seen in flashback) who once ran a cafe in town against many personal odds. The tale inspires Bates to take further command over her life, and there director Jon Avnet (Up Close and Personal), in his first feature, has fun with the film. Bates develops a real attitude toward her thickheaded spouse at home and some uppity girls in a parking lot, but dignity is generally the key to Avnet's approach with the story's crucial relationships. Tandy is a joy and clearly loves the element of mystery attached to her character, and Masterson and Parker are excellent in the historical sequences. --Tom Keogh

It is a beautiful story of love, pure equality, charity, and how anyone can change a great number of lives or even
the world using only the power of love, combined with charity. It contains powerfully humorous satirical messages that the world needs to wake up and hear. Contact me if you would like further clarification of how the underlying spiritual principles of this movie have healed me, and continue to heal or help any who can even have the tiniest belief that what I write is true.
In our family, we do not show this to young children. It could produce more harm than good to young minds.
By the time the movie is over, your heart will be touched. If it isn't, take your pulse and call for medical help if necessary. Furthermore, you might find yourself with a vague desire to move South. You will probably also make and eat fried green tomatoes for the first time in your life. I had them this morning for breakfast and I never would have ever thought of eating such a thing. Delicious (the tomatoes and the movie) :o)
Little did I know when I fist saw this one that I would ever be living down south near the state this movie takes place in. If you're a Southerner, by choice or birth, you'll really enjoy this film for its authenticity.
Overall, this is a terrific film and I bought it to watch over and over again.
Update for 12/5/2014 I also bought a copy of this DVD as an upcoming Christmas gift for my grandma who has not seen it yet, and I know that she will really love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
