Based on the inspiring true story of living legend Dolly Parton's remarkable upbringing, this once-in-a-lifetime movie special takes us inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith and a raggedy patchwork coat that helped make Dolly who she is today. Over the years, many have attempted to bring this story to life, and now, finally, fans across America can experience the heartwarming tale of a courageous nine-year-old girl from Tennessee and the loving family that taught her the power of inner strength.Written by
The only real Parton family member in the movie, Stella Mae Parton obviously was unable to portray herself as a child, so was instead portrayed by actress Farrah MacKenzie, while Stella was cast as Carla Bass. See more »
If Lynd was only very young in 2015, then she could not have possibly acted on the Young and Restless in 1973. See more »
One of the finest God-honoring films my family has ever seen!
Recently my family watched Dolly Parton's stupendous "Coat of Many Colors" and though I have long been a fan of her music and movies, I felt she/her company have crafted one of the best God-honoring films ever offered on national television! There were parts I am not ashamed to tell you that made this grown man tear up a little. Everyone in the movie is excellent and values such as forgiveness, love, faith during difficult and joyous times (perseverance), and the power of redemption, abiding faith in God, and the focused love of family that is centered upon surrendering ultimately not to one another but to God Almighty - all came shining through this wonderful film.
Years ago I reached one of Dolly Parton's songwriters almost by accident on the phone when seeking permission to seek on of her songs "Make Love Work" in church. I was given permission and sang the song subsequently. That Sunday I left church and (riding high on the words that suggested "...we've got to try a little bit harder to make love work") - briefly reunited with my own estranged parents. I mention this as I recalled the occasion and singing the song while watching the story of Dolly's family and their strong faith and her God-given talents in "Coat of Many Colors". To all who were involved in this film - it will long remain with me and my entire family was grateful to see a true gem that sparkled on national TV with the values we hold most dear to us - especially the one that holds a vital faith in God focused clearly right up front. Thank you for all those involved....and Dolly...May God continue to bless you and use you for His glory. I hope you make Part 2 soon and share more of your life and faith. Terrific scenery/sets, acting, plot, dialogue, and a clear Godly focus made this movie terrific. It truly blessed my family. Thanks Dolly (and others).
