The 1986 film adaptation was directed by Bruce Beresford and garnered three Academy Awards nominations, including one for Henley for Best Adapted Screenplay. Set in Hazlehurst, Mississippi, the threee Magrath sisters have gathered during their grandfather's final hours in the local hospital. Lenny the olderst sister, is unmarried at thirthy and facing diminishing marital prospects: Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast: while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her. In the end the play is the story of how its young characters escape the past to seize the future - but the telling is so true and touching and consistently hilarious that it will linger in the mind long after the curtain has descended.

I was suspicious at first, you know the saying "too good to be true", but within a week I got a job for America's Hottest Mom as a judge which will air in the spring-not to mention the countless auditions that I have gone on. Recently I have done a tv spot for Dog the Bounty Hunter which will air on A&E. Thanks again, you have made my dream a reality. Thank you Explore Talent!
