If you loved the original 1989 version of “Steel Magnolias” with Shirley McLaine and Julia Roberts, you should catch the all-Black remake this weekend on Lifetime. Queen Latifah, Jill Scott, Phylicia Rashad and Alfre Woodward take their stab at remaking a classic film. Ava Duvernay’s poignant “I Will Follow” is on BET, in case you didn’t see the movie from the first Black female director to win at Sundance. Carlina White’s real-life story gets its dramatized turn on Lifetime this weekend as well. If you choose to go out, “Taken 2” is in theaters and Anthony Hamilton and Mint Condition are both on the road.
