An adopted 11 year old girl from the suburbs becomes convinced that country singer Dolly Parton is her biological mother, and embarks on an epic quest to seek out her true identity with her adoptive mother in hot pursuit. The year is 1976: Parton is burning up the country music charts, and imaginative pre-teen Elizabeth (Julia Stone) has just discovered that her parents aren't who they seem to be. Determined to get back to her roots, Elizabeth runs away from home, and never looks back.

The Year My Mom Was Dolly Parton relies on a good but not great script, well-drawn characters and performances and a pleasant, fuzzy sense of a simpler time.
Unfortunately, Johns' movie is less satisfying when it comes to matters not directly pertaining to Dolly Parton.
