  • Video: 94

  • The 4K UHD Blu-Ray of 'Steel Magnolias' from Sony Pictures offers a stellar presentation with vibrant Dolby Vision HDR10 colors, excellent 2160p video detail, and a natural filmic quality. Retaining the original grain, it features deep blacks and fine textures, establishing it as the definitive version for home collections.

  • Audio: 92

  • Steel Magnolias' 4K UHD Blu-Ray features a nuanced Dolby Atmos mix that revives the original sound design, enhancing dialogue clarity, ambient effects, and Georges Delerue's score while providing distinct options including DTS-HD MA 5.1 and 2.0 tracks for varied, but slightly less immersive experiences.

  • Extra: 78

  • While Director Herbert Ross' commentary offers valuable production insights, the standout extra is the 'In Full Bloom: Remembering Steel Magnolias' retrospective. The collection includes the failed 1990 TV pilot, brief deleted scenes, and an upscaled theatrical trailer, all largely ported from previous releases.

  • Movie: 92

  • Steel Magnolias' 4K UHD Blu-ray release brilliantly captures the heartwarming and heartbreaking essence of Herbert Ross's 1989 adaptation of Robert Harling's play, showcasing an emotionally profound story with top-tier performances by Fields, Parton, and Roberts. Visually stunning in 4K, it remains a timeless and cherished classic.
