9.30PM, ELEVEN ★★ ★★

A pow­er­house cast in­clud­ing Ju­lia Roberts, Sally Field, Dolly Par­ton, Shirley MacLaine, Daryl Han­nah and Olympia Dukakis amps up this story of a close- knit cir­cle of friends who come to­gether at a lo­cal beauty par­lour as the re­al­ity of their small- town Louisiana lives un­fold. The one- lin­ers fl ow freely in this bit­ter­sweet drama as do the tears. Among this re­viewer’s favourite lines is one from MacLaine’s bad- tem­pered Ouiser Boudreaux: “I’m not crazy, I’ve just been in a very bad mood 40 years.”
