A chance encounter in a nursing home between dowdy housewife Evelyn Couch (Academy Award®-winner Kathy Bates) and spry octogenarian Ninny Threadgoode (Academy Award®-winner Jessica Tandy) leads to an unexpected friendship. Ninny tells Evelyn an absorbing story of two woman who lived a half century ago in the town of Whistle Stop: the fiercely independent Idgie (Mary Stuart Masterson) and the gentle Ruth (Mary-Louise Parker). Idgie stands up to the Klan, Ruth's abusive husband and a charge of murder in a time when a woman's place was considered in the kitchen. Idgie's courage in the face of adversity inspires Evelyn to take a look at her own life and make drastic changes, often with hilarious results. It's the story of a friendship that defied all obstacles, a devotion that couldn't be broken and a courage unlike any other. It's the story of a simpler time, and the strength of the human spirit that still exists today. Director Jon Avnet's film of Fannie Flagg's best selling novel.
