New York playwright, Sidda Walker (Sandra Bullock - Miss Congeniality) is high on life with her new play opening on Broadway and her pending wedding to the gorgeous Connor. But following an unguarded magazine interview, Sidda unintentionally reveals more than she planned about her childhood and fragile relationship with her eccentric mother, Vivi (Ellen Burstyn).
After reading the article, the outraged vivi disowns Sidda, takes down her pictures and refuses to attend her wedding! Like mother, like daughter: neither is likely to take the steps to bridge the chasm between them. No, this is a job for the Ya-Ya Sisterhood, sworn lifelong friends of Vivi, who are eager to restore peace between mother and daughter - whatever it takes! Based on Rebecca Wells’ bestsellers, Sandra Bullock leads a star-studded cast including Ashley Judd, Maggie Smith and James Garner.
Written for the screen and directed by Thelma and Louise Academy Award winner Callie Khouri, this deliciously warm and funny adaptation will have you laughing and crying out loud!
