What You Need To Know:

DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS OF MANY COLORS:  CIRCLE OF LOVE is a follow up to the MOVIEGUIDE(r) award winner TV movie COAT OF MANY COLORS about Dolly Parton’s childhood. In this program, Dolly’s father and her siblings make sacrifices so they can get their Mama a beautiful ring, something she’s never had. Dolly is excited that her prayers were answered, and she gets to play the Virgin Mary in the church Nativity play. However, when a blizzard hits the farm, everyone is put in danger.

CIRCLE OF LOVE is a delightful TV program. Though the storytelling is bumpy at times, the acting is top notch. The movie’s jeopardy and stakes are stronger this time, but the emotional conflicts aren’t quite as powerful as COAT OF MANY COLORS. Even so, the program’s message of sacrifice, acceptance and forgiveness is strong. It’s all wrapped in an overt message of Christian faith. There are only a couple of brief, minor objectionable elements. Otherwise, however, DOLLY PARTON’S CHRISTMAS OF MANY COLORS:  CIRCLE OF LOVE is a perfect program to get families into the real spirit of Christmas.


(CCC, BBB, L, V, S, M) Very strong Christian, biblical, moral worldview revolves around Christmas and the birth of Jesus, with songs about his birth, prayer, discussions of the Bible, and an overt message that God is Love and He came to save us, a man is baptized, an angel protects the family, and Christian, biblical values promoting sacrifice, acceptance and forgiveness; two utterances of the “h” word; light violence includes a mine collapses, but no one dies, man is bruised up a bit from the collapse, a family is put in peril during a blizzard; man kisses and flirts with his wife, and it’s implied a woman may be a prostitute or a “loose” woman; no nudity; no alcohol use; brief smoking of cigarettes; and, children bicker and lie.



Now more than ever we’re bombarded by darkness in media, movies, and TV. Movieguide® has fought back for almost 40 years, working within Hollywood to propel uplifting and positive content. We’re proud to say we’ve collaborated with some of the top industry players to influence and redeem entertainment for Jesus. Still, the most influential person in Hollywood is you. The viewer.

What you listen to, watch, and read has power. Movieguide® wants to give you the resources to empower the good and the beautiful. But we can’t do it alone. We need your support.
