Coat of Many Colors

This once-in-a-lifetime special 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. The coat, vividly described in the well-known song of the film’s title- 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. Coat of Many Colors is Dolly’s true story about the simple gift hat changed her life forever.

I had hoped to watch Coat of Many Colors when it aired on tv, but didn’t get a chance. I was so bummed, but then I found out it was coming to dvd and I was going to receive a copy to review, I was so excited. I had heard chatter during the show about how touching Dolly Parton’s story was, but I had no idea just how touching it would be until I got to watch it for myself.

I was volunteering at our church’s thrift store and while I was eating my lunch I decided I would watch “Coat of Many Colors”. I sat there completely drawn in and laughed and even cried throughout the movie. Watching Dolly interact with her parents and siblings in such a way that showed just how close a family can be and that even when tragedty strikes, we have to rely on our faith to get us through.

To watch a family that is full of laughter and fun endure something that caused them to question God and become angry was heart wrenching! As we watch the family heal, we heal right along with them. I went through every emotion I was seeing on the screen. We will hear wonderful words of wisdom through the film, watch a wife never give up on her husbands salvation, and watch as the film comes full cirlce!

Dolly Parton’s story is one that will tug at your heartstrings. It was a wonderful movie, that far exceeded my expectations. The Partons show just how important it is to focus on love and the good things, in the midst of the bad. It’s a lesson so many of us could do to remember. You can own Coat of Many Colors on DVD and enjoy a family-friendly movie night in with the ones you love!
