Go big, or go home! "Dumplin’" follows an outspoken plus-sized teenage girl named Willowdean (Danielle Macdonald), who’s known as "Will" to her friends and "Dumplin’" to her mother (Jennifer Aniston), a former beauty queen who now runs the local Miss Teen Blue Bonnet pageant. In her small Texas town, Will confidently ignores comments about her weight and listens to Dolly Parton songs obsessively. But when she decides to enter her mother’s pageant in protest, her bold move encourages other contestants to follow in her footsteps, redefining the town’s traditions in the process. The movie is based on the "New York Times" best-selling Young Adult book, "Dumplin’," written by Arlington resident, Julie Murphy. Run time: 1:50 Rated PG-13.
Julie Murphy will be at Movie Night to sign copies of her book. Books will be available for purchase from the Bibliobus by Bibliobar. Pre-order the book in our shop to guarantee yours.
The first 100 guests will receive an Arlington Highlands gift card.
