Plot – James Dean, one of the young lions of the '50s and an award winner in Stevenson's "The Giant", died tragically in 1955. Twenty years later in McCarthy, Texas, where that movie was shot, some of his hard core fans gather in the local drugstore, home of their club. Members to the club are: dull Edna Louise, soon to be mother for the seventh time; prosperous and frantic Sissy, who helps the elderly widow Juanita, the store owner; Mona, a poor woman obsessed with the idea that James Dean is the father of her son Jimmy; fat loud Stella and elegant enigmatic Joanna. Between hugs and bickering, old songs, a few beers drunk inside a modest general store full of odds and ends and the sultry heat of the Texas countryside, the women talk, commiserate, rant and rave in the apparently happy memory of the good old days but bitterly comparing the image of their youth with the frustrations and disappointments of their present. In painful honesty, the women talk and tear each other apart in tears and hysterical laughter, but nevertheless still set a date for another rally in honor of their idol.
