Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

116' - 2002 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Callie Khouri Composer: T Bone Burnett, David Mansfield With: Sandra Bullock, Ellen Burstyn, Maggie Smith, Fionulla Flanagan
Sidda Lee Walker, a prominent young playwright living in New York City, is a long way from her Louisiana hometown and at a nice safe distance from her loving, but highly dramatic and eccentric mother. When a Time Magazine profile on Sidda implies that Vivi was not a good mother, Vivi is outraged and the two women get into a fight that threatens to destroy not only their relationship but Sidda's tenuous wedding plans. Enter the Ya-Ya Sisterhood … Vivi's intrepid gang of lifelong friends, eager to restore peace no matter what it takes. To truly understand Vivi, the Ya-Yas believe, Sidda must know who her mother was as a young woman. A high-spirited beauty who valued love and loyalty above all else, young Vivi was dealt many disappointments in life but was also blessed with an indomitable sense of humour, an adventurous spirit and three best friends.
