Jennifer Aniston, Danielle Macdonald Streaming Dec. 7 on Netflix PG-13
BIG, blonde... and beautiful! That’s what Willowdean “Dumplin’ ” Dickson (Macdonald) is here to prove after signing up for the Miss Teen Bluebonnet pageant, even if her mother, Rosie (Aniston) — a former beauty queen who’s reached celeb status in her small Texas town — thinks there’s a fat chance she’ll actually win! Sick and tired of being taught girls must be thin to be “in,” Dumplin’ is staging a plus-size protest that eventually revolutionizes the annual contest when other heavy hopefuls like Millie (Hairspray Live! star Maddie Baillio) sign up for their shot at the crown. Still, the chubby contestants have no clue what it takes to become a pageant princess. And since it’s going to take a lot more than just concealer to cover up their shortcomings, they head to the Hideaway, a local drag bar with none other than RuPaul’s Drag Race’s Ginger Minj on the bill, to teach them how to bat their eyes. And if you weren’t sold at “drag queens,” Dumplin’ comes complete with new music from country legend Dolly Parton! Forget 9 to 5, we’ll be bingeing this new Netflix film all night long!
