DirectorJohn Avnet
CastKathy Bates Jessica Tandy Mary Stuart Masterson
NotesVery talky film set in the Southern U.S. Bates is the wife who listens to Tandy in a nursing home telling her tales from the past, with flash backs. In a peripheral incident a young boy loses an arm in a train accident but there's no follow through. Not really enough charm despite good performances to hold one's attention. From Fannie Flagg's novel: Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe There's a worthwhile review at The Women's Studies Database: http://www.inform.umd.edu/EdRes/Topic/WomensStudies/FilmReviews/fried-tomatoes-mcalister
