Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood

Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood New York playwright Sidda Lee Walker is a long way from her Louisiana hometown, but an even greater emotional distance separates her from her eccentric mother Vivi. Like mother, like daughter: neither is likely to take the steps to bridge the chasm between them. No, this is a job for the Ya-Ya Sisterhood.

The Ya-Yas -- sworn lifelong friends of Vivi -- stage an unorthodox ''intervention'' to bring daughter and mother together in this warm, winning adaptation of Rebecca Wells' bestsellers, written for the screen and directed by Thelma and Louise Academy Award winner Callie Khouri.

Sandra Bullock plays Sidda and leads a stellar cast: Ellen Burstyn (as present-day Vivi), Ashley Judd (as the younger Vivi), James Garner and, as the trio of irascible do-good Ya-Yas, Fionnula Flanagan, Shirley Knight and Maggie Smith. ''This sisterhood is powerful and powerfully funny,'' The Philadelphia Inquirer's Carrie Rickey wrote. Ya-Ya to that!
