DUMPLIN’

Jen­nifer Anis­ton, Danielle Mac­don­ald Stream­ing Dec. 7 on Net­flix PG-13

Star (USA) - - STYLE -

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!
