    The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I caught this little film today on The Movie Network and being that I love Dolly Parton I was immediately intrigued. This story of a young girl coming to terms with the realization that she was adopted is touching and engaging, blending drama and emotion with classic elements of coming-of-age road trip films. A great find on a lazy Sunday morning!

    Caught this at the Atlantic Film Festival in 2011. While beautifully shot, I admit this style of contemporary dance wasn't terribly interesting to me in parts. Aside from a couple of scenes, I wasn't impressed but from the reactions of the audience I did get the impression I was in the minority. The 3D was cool in a scene or two, but overall I'm not a fan of the 3D experience so perhaps I was a little biassed.

    Not quite as good as it was when I was nine years old, but I remember how stoked I was when I saw Super Mario Bros. 3 which is still the best video game of all time.
