Faith and Family Movie
11 December 2015 | by (Rogers, Arkansas) – See all my reviews

This movie shows the life of Dolly Parton in the beautiful Smoky Mountains. I lived in East Tennessee for seven years and love the people and the beauty of the area. This movie gives a peek at life in East Tennessee. Clean movie. Use of the word "Hell". Cute little girl to play Dolly. Movie gets me excited to go back and visit the area again. When movie comes to video, it will be apart of our family's collection. Nice to see clean movie on prime time viewing. Hopefully this will encourage the alphabet stations to put more of these types of movies instead of crude humored shows. Cool to see Dolly become a balladeer during the movie and see her at Dollywood.
