What You Need To Know:
DOLLY PARTON’S COAT OF MANY COLORS is a wonderful TV movie on NBC about legendary country artist Dolly Parton as a child and an event that inspired her hit song “Coat of Many Colors.” Living in the Great Smokey Mountains in 1950, the Parton family struggles to get by like many other families in rural Tennessee, but they love each other dearly. When tragedy strikes, 9-year-old Dolly takes it especially hard, losing her joy and her hope. Will Dolly overcome her anger and bitterness and find faith again?
DOLLY PARTON’S COAT OF MANY COLORS is delightful and faith-inspiring throughout! Though some may consider it a sanitized reflection of its time and place, as a television special viewed by millions, it’s a refreshing celebration of the simple things that truly matter – faith, family and forgiveness. The movie discusses repentance, Christ’s resurrection and redemption in ways rarely seen on television. Only a light caution is advised for three rather light obscenities and an exclamatory profanity. Otherwise, DOLLY PARTON’S COAT OF MANY COLORS is a fantastic TV movie the whole family can watch together and enjoy.
(CCC, BBB, L, V, S, N, D, M) Very strong Christian, biblical, moral worldview extolling faith, prayer, repentance, family, and forgiveness with multiple scenes in a church, and multiple scenes discussing and quoting the Bible, with one theologically confused statement of “forgiving God”; three rather light obscenities (one “d” word and two “h” words) and one exclamatory profanity; some bullying and implied violence, girl gets a bloody nose, the topics of death and stillborn children are addressed; husband and wife are seen in bed, it’s briefly discussed and implied that the unbelieving husband went to see another woman, who may have been an old girlfriend in younger days, but there’s no reference to an actual affair, and one kiss; upper male nudity; no drinking; light smoking; and, girl yells at God, but eventually repents, and theft and lying.
