Just in time for Mother’s Day, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release the critically acclaimed film Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors on DVD for the first time on May 3, 2016.
“It is my true belief that if you’re lucky enough to have a good mother, that is the greatest gift that you will ever know,” said Dolly. “So many people responded to my Mother in the “Coat of Many Colors” movie not only because of the wonderful job that Jennifer Nettles did portraying her, but the love and attention that Mama gave to all of her children.”
This once-in-a-lifetime special takes place inside the tight-knit Parton family as they struggle to overcome a devastating tragedy and discover the healing power of love, faith and a raggedy patchwork coat — vividly described in the well-known song of the film’s title — that helped make Parton who she is today. Set in the Tennessee Great Smoky Mountains in 1955, this poignant and uplifting family-friendly story follows the incidents in Dolly and her family’s life around the time she was nine years old.
The family-oriented faith-based movie stars Jennifer Nettles (award-winning singer/songwriter and lead vocalist of the duo Sugarland), Ricky Schroder (NYPD Blue, The Lost Battalion, 24), Gerald McRaney (Agent X, Mike & Molly, Longmire, House of Cards), and Alyvia Alyn Lind (Transparent, Revenge,Blended). Dolly Parton introduces the film and serves as narrator.
Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors also contains an alternate version of the movie, deleted scenes and heartwarming extras. The DVD is priced to own at $19.98 SRP.
