This once-in-a-lifetime Special individual takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome a devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith, and a raggedy patchwork coat — vividly described in the well-known song of the film’s title — that helped make Parton, who she is today. Set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955, this poignant and uplifting family-friendly story follows the incidents in Dolly and her family’s life around the time she was nine years old.
When we were younger, I can remember listening to all kinds of country music, with my Nanny and the ones that stand out the most were Barbera Mandrell and Dolly Parton. Dolly had a dream, worked hard, and made it come true. Coat of Many Colors is a must-see movie! Thank you, Dolly Parton, for sharing your story and your life with the world!
A movie that is based on her life, and all things she had gone through with her life. This inspiring tale recounts the story of a young Dolly Parton and how her family coped with drought, poverty, and death in Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains during the 1950s. We enjoyed this movie, to see where she came from to where she is now, kept us interested and there were tears and smiles.
