MOVIES: Dumplin’

MOVIES: Dumplin’


By Steve McSteveface

“An outspoken plus-sized teenage girl named Willowdean who’s known as Will to her friends and Dumplin’ to her mother a former beauty queen who now runs the local Miss Teen Blue Bonnet pageant. In her small Texas town, Will confidently ignores comments about her weight and listens to Dolly Parton songs obsessively.

But when she decides to enter her mother’s pageant in protest, her bold move encourages other contestants to follow in her footsteps, redefining the town’s traditions in the process.”


This is a Netflix Original movie and if you are looking for a nice, feel good, “coming of age” movie then this will tick all those boxes. Also, if you are a fan of Dolly Parton then this is a must- see movie!

Don’t be put off by the fact that Jennifer Aniston stars in it as after about 5 minutes you completely forget she was Rachel from Friends.


Of course, it’s going to be a Dolly Parton soundtrack but there are a few twists. There is an incredible collaboration version of ‘Here I Am’ with Sia.

There’s an amazing remix of ‘Jolene’ which will absolutely have you up on your feet and line dancing this holiday season.
