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 »
Let me first start by saying that now days its really hard to find a family movie that can be free of sexual scenes, profanity language that at the same time can be entertaining. I enjoyed this movie from start to finish.
My family ages, 43, 39, 7,14 watched this movie together and would watch it again. The movie is not about how Dolly got famous, but more about redemption, love and how Dolly's family despite being very poor had it all ( love, GOD, faith, moral).
It leaves a strong message and cannot wait to see it again on Christmas day, as it was announced it was a hit with 13 million viewers nationwide.
