It’s 1978 and the ever-ordinary Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd) leads a simple life. She lives with her mother, runs the pharmacy, directs The Trail of the Lonesome Pine Outdoor Drama, and hopes that her best friend will take their platonic friendship in a romantic direction. Ave Maria waits, and before she knows it, she turns 40. Now the old maid of Big Stone Gap, Ave Maria decides that happiness is for other people – that is, until a long-buried family secret throws her quiet life spectacularly off course. With an all-star cast, Big Stone Gap is a love letter to small-town life, working people and the triumph of love.

Flat comedy about small-town '70s life lacks laughs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Big Stone Gap is a romantic comedy starring Ashley Judd that's focused on life in a Virginia coal-mining town in the late 1970s. Overall this story about living life and pursuing your dreams (fi you can figure out what they are) is quite mild: Expect some sexual innuendo (including speculation about a character's sexual preferences) and kissing and very infrequent swearing (including "ass" and "screw"). Some characters smoke cigarettes and drink, including a weeding scene in which a bride and groom are almost too wasted to make it down the aisle.
