Magnolia, released in 1999, is a movie epic which exposes 9 lives connected by tensions.
A key scene takes place on Magnolia Boulevard.
Magnolia is a typical San Fernando Valley boulevard, wide, straight and long. From its easternmost end, at the foot of the Verdugo Mountains, it travels more than 10 miles, bisecting neighborhoods of postwar ranch homes one mile and gritty commercial stretches the next. Ref: Los Angeles Times
The writer/director, Paul Thomas Anderson, had the title of "Magnolia" in his head before he wrote the script. "As he started writing, the script "kept blossoming" and he realized that there were many actors he wanted to write for and then decided to put an epic spin on topics that don't necessarily get the epic treatment."
He also did research on the magnolia tree and discovered a concept that eating the tree's bark helped cure cancer. Ref: HERE
