Dolly Parton, beauty pageants and a message we'd love to see on the big screen more often. That's Dumplin', the film produced by Jennifer Aniston's company Echo Films following charismatic teenager Willowdean Dickson (Danielle Macdonald) on a song-filled journey of self-acceptance. Driven by the passion of her late Aunt Lucy, Willowdean struggles with identity, her overbearing Pageant-Queen-Mother (Jennifer Aniston), and body image issues far too common amongst teen girls. And with a splash of Dolly Parton thrown in for good measure, this is a feel-good discovery film with a twist we need to talk about.
