Storyline

Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, the tiny town of Big Stone Gap is home to some of the most charming eccentrics in the state. Ave Maria Mulligan is the town's self-proclaimed spinster, a thirty-five year old pharmacist with a "mountain girl's body and a flat behind." She lives an amiable life with good friends and lots of hobbies until the fateful day in 1978 when she suddenly discovers that she's not who she always thought she was. Before she can blink, Ave's fielding marriage proposals, fighting off greedy family members, organizing a celebration for visiting celebrities, and planning the trip of a lifetime-a trip that could change her view of the world and her own place in it forever.

OK film, that under performs.
15 October 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A small town woman in the late 70s whose at that age when she should be married with children, by the standards of the town, discovers who her real father is, which causes her to take a second look at life.

The story is laid out perfectly as Ashley Judd leads and ensemble cast that features Whoopi Goldberg, Jenna Elfman, and Patrick Wilson. It's one of those things that delivers by the third act, and it makes you feel good inside.

However the first two acts are not that inspiring for me. The jokes seem off and the delivery was pretty lackluster.

The whole thing may have been too corny for my taste and more suitable for the small town folks the story is about.

The movie ends strong, but not so strong that I would recommend watching the entire thing.
