To paraphrase something Parton once said about herself: It may look fake, but it's real where it counts. What counts most is the acting, which lends the story a naturalism that the script can't.
The story is a sweet one, and Coat of Many Colors does what it does very well.
Although it's a struggle at times, you do suspend disbelief and go with it because Lind is so adorable, and you want to accept that the saccharine story line could have played out in real life just the way it's depicted in the film.
It's a romanticized view of the past, to put it mildly, and it's as sticky sweet as the caramel apple cider you might find at Dollywood.
Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors is a TV movie like mama used to make - a relentlessly faith-based holiday confection geared toward an audience that had reason to feel underserved by network television.
It's refreshing to see such an unsanitized story of faith, family love, and overcoming adversity.
Simply beautiful and beautifully simple.
This is the time of year when sentimentality can be a warming thing, and Parton's Coat will keep an awful lot of people warm this winter.
Just like Dolly Parton, who is one of the best live performers I've ever seen, it is immensely watchable. However, for those who don't regularly visit the house of the lord, it will make your eyes roll like loose marbles in the back of a station wagon.
