Storyline

Nestled in the Appalachian Mountains of Virginia, the tiny town of Big Stone Gap is home to some of the most charming eccentrics in the state. Ave Maria Mulligan is the town's self-proclaimed spinster, a thirty-five year old pharmacist with a "mountain girl's body and a flat behind." She lives an amiable life with good friends and lots of hobbies until the fateful day in 1978 when she suddenly discovers that she's not who she always thought she was. Before she can blink, Ave's fielding marriage proposals, fighting off greedy family members, organizing a celebration for visiting celebrities, and planning the trip of a lifetime-a trip that could change her view of the world and her own place in it forever.

A perfect mix of ingredients for a funny love story
12 October 2015 | by fortfiedSee all my reviews

The writer-director Adriana Trigiana seems to have wisely studied filmmaker Robert Altman when she made this film. It is based on a well-loved popular novel of the same name written by Trigiana. It is a perfect blend of humor and pathos that makes us care about the colorful characters who were part of Trigiana's real life. Ashley Judd is an amazing actress - you can't take your eyes off her. Both Jenna Elfman and Whoopi Goldberg are in full command of their comic gifts! And somehow Patrick Wilson has become the gold standard of masculinity in leading men. This film has a great story that makes you both cheer and cry at the end. A must see!
