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 bit of Americana
11 October 2015 | by peterpetroski-13173See all my reviews

So nice to see an accurate view of Americana. Lush photography, numerous subplots, human themes, and quirk characters- a movie that is more like us than the "classical" movies are.

Ashley Judd is true to her roots and the nuances and depth of her acting resonates.

Patrick Wilson is all that we expect him to be: If they ever made "The Phantom of the Mountains", he would be the hero!

And Whoopi, as always, nails the obvious with offbeat humor and insights.

Even Shug makes a cameo.

And, a true-to-1978 UK shirt is slipped in.

Ever have a mean aunt? A luscious librarian?? A wild girlfriend??? A friend who is more deserving of help than anyone you ever knew????

Feel like sighing, smiling, and identifying Americana artifacts? - Go see!!
