What a great find!
9 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This story isn't just about the coal queens, but about the town, the coal mining lifestyle and the state of Pennsylvania. Really interesting subject matter and beautiful scenery.

I couldn't place the main character, but she looked oh-so familiar. It was funny and somber, and I grew to actually care about the girls, and have a favorite. This movie should be viewed with an open mind. Even though beauty pageants may be deemed unfeminist or backwards, the presentation herein is ideal.

Be sure to watch the bonus features where it says what everyone is doing now!
