Coming off the phenomenal performance of last year's holiday special and looking to recapture the enthusiasm of the nearly 16 million viewers who tuned in, the heartwarming story continues with the next chapter in the young life of legendary country singer Dolly Parton, Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love. The film delivers Christmas joy and peril as an unexpected blizzard threatens the Parton family, while at the same time Dolly's father (and his kids) make sacrifices to raise enough money to finally buy his loving wife the wedding ring he could never afford to give her. Meanwhile, an important person in little Dolly's life begins to see that her amazing voice and musical gift might just be made for something bigger than rural Tennessee.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Dolly Parton's Christmas of Many Colors: Circle of Love originally aired as a TV movie and follows Dolly Parton's Coat of Many Colors with more inspirational stories about sacrifice, selflessness, and Christian faith from the acclaimed singer's childhood. Much like the first movie, this story doesn't sugarcoat the harsh realities of life in a poor rural community in the 1950s, and the characters face life-or-death peril. In a particularly tense scene, Dolly's mother talks to her daughter about facing death with courage and helping the younger kids to do the same. In another, the fate of Dolly's father is in question. Young kids and sensitive viewers might need reassurance during these scenes, but there are overwhelmingly more incidents of perseverance, kindness, mentoring, and faith to take from this story that warms the heart for the holiday season.
