In the tradition of the old Southern storyteller, 'Fried Green' Tomatoes classic tale weaves together disparate lives and cherished times. Evelyn (Kathy Bates) is a middle-aged housewife dissatisfied with her life. One day she meets an elderly lady, Mrs Threadgoode (Jessica Tandy) who tells her a story of two young women in the 1930's on a journey through life and love. The friendship of the two girls, Idgie (Mary Stuart Masterson) and Ruth (Mary Louise Parker) inspires Evelyn to improve her life and luck. A warm, touching and at rimes greatly amusing tale about the importance of friendship.
I recommend this as a "must see" film. Well filmed and enjoyable - never dull. A very clever story told in intriguing flash-backs, in combination with excellent filming of the forming of a friendship between Evelyn and Ninny, and cleverly poking fun at some of the worse aspects of modern life.
