We’ve gathered newly released movie stills from Lifetime’s Steel Magnolias remake and recreated the film based on the original. While it’s doesn’t necessarily detail the film– it does paint an overall picture of life, loss and friendship.

The movie stars Academy Award nominee, Queen Latifah as ‘M’Lynn’, Golden Globe and multiple Emmy-winner Alfre Woodard as ‘Ouiser,’ Tony Award winner Phylicia Rashad as ‘Clairee,’ Grammy winner Jill Scott as ‘Truvy,’ Adepero Oduye as ‘Annelle’ and Tony nominee Condola Rashad as ‘Shelby.’ The cast also includes Tory Kittles, Lance Gross, Michael Beasley and others.

An adaptation of the esteemed play and 1989 film, this modern-day version chronicles the lives and friendship of six women in Louisiana. Supporting each other through their triumphs and tragedies, they congregate at Truvy’s beauty shop to ponder the mysteries of life and death, husbands and children – and hair and nails — all the important topics that bring women together.
