What is “Galentine’s Day” you ask? It’s the day right before Valentine’s Day that celebrates female friendship, coined by none other than Amy Poehler’s character, Leslie Knope in Parks and Recreation. This day gives you the opportunity to grab all your best gals together; they can be your mom, your besties, your coworkers, and even that lady who works at your favorite coffee shop with the amazing hair. It doesn’t matter who, as long as they’re a gal you cherish, so you can celebrate each other, because romantic relationships are fleeting and messy, and let’s be honest, Valentine’s Day makes a lot of people feel miserable… but friendships are EVERYTHING.

Revolving around Truvy's Beauty Parlor in a small parish in modern-day Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together there. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter's wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M'Lynn and Shelby (Drum's wife and daughter) depart for Truvy's to get their hair done for the wedding. "Just the sweetest thing," Annelle Depuy Desoto (who may or may not be married because her marriage may not be legal) is introduced to Truvy's customers as her new "glamour technician." While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, later in the picture, "If you can't find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me." Filled with humor and heartbreak, these "Steel Magnolias" make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.
