Southern Girls is about three women who are at different stages in their lives but they all seem to share a common bond: they want to make their lives better. Joan is going through a lot in her life and marriage. Things turn for the worst and she and her husband consider divorce. One day Joan re-discovers the 10 commandments. She starts to believe that the 10 will solve any problem that anyone might face. She creates a club for women called SOUTHERN GIRLS. She calls it Southern Girls because it has been said that the girls of the south are the most wholesome. In this club women meet to figure out how they can be better women for themselves, their families, and society as a whole.

Dove Review

This movie focuses on a club of women, comprised of three, who share a common bond. They all want their lives to be better than they are. The women are Joan, Celeste, and Becky. This movie shares a great theme in that the women agree if they all seek God and try to live by the Ten Commandments, their lives will be much improved. They also support each other through tragic and difficult times.

They face problems such as the death of a mother and broken relationships. For those who enjoy soap operas, the movie plays a bit that way as some of the situations are quite dramatic. Yet in the end all the loose ends are tied up and they have a happy ending although they keep the club going for future support.

We are pleased to award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal for ages twelve and above. This is a good one for an all teen-aged girl movie night. Watch it soon!
