If there's anything this film should teach its audience, it's that while you may not always have your act together, there's nothing a little Dolly Pardon and some red shoes can't turn into a fun night.
Reveling in the warm, sunshiny and unmistakeable boughs of Texas, Dumplin' is effectively a cuddle in a movie, whose core messages about beauty, weight and 'fitting in' - oh-so thankfully - never come off as trite.
It's not just about sharing the joys of an old-school heart-warming happy-ever-after; it's a rallying cry that everyone deserves their own story. Is Dumplin' simple and predictable? Sure, but you've still never seen this story quite like this before.
In my eyes, [Dickson] represents a positivity I haven't ever seen on a screen - one that doesn't seek to change her body to fit in, but to change the world to find space and celebration for her fat frame.
