I can tell the author lived in the south and based the characters on the people in his hometown.  The blend of  personalities in the 6 main characters epitomizes southern women IMO.  I watch this movie at least once a month and have a good cry.   The bonus features on the DVD are fascinating -- all about the story behind the story.  SO moving.
