Well, first of all, one of the main roles in the film was played by the charismatic Kathy Bates. Secondly, the picture is based on the novel by Fanny Flagg. Third, we can say without any preconceptions that this is one of the best movies of the ’90s. So imagine, one heroine named Evelyn Couch comes to the hospital to visit her husband’s aunt, where she meets sweet old lady Ninnie, who keeps her occupied with the life story of two friends, Iji and Ruth. Together they kept a cafe that served fried green tomatoes. It’s a touching picture about female friendship (and a little more), love and loyalty, courage and fortitude.
