Based on the best-selling novel by Fannie Flagg, this film was released in the Spring of 1992 and was the surprise hit film of early summer. The film centres around the lives of four women - Ninny Threadgoode, Evelyn Couch, Ruth Jamison and Idgie Threadgoode, Ninny's sister-in-law. Ninny recounts to Evelyn the lives of Idgie and Ruth who ran the Whistle Stop Cafe. Over the passing weeks, Evelyn, through listening to Ninny's stories, has the courage to face up to what is wrong with her life. She has the chance to improve herself, save her marriage, and even show a little of the spirit shown by Ruth and Idgie all those years ago...
