Dumplin’, Friendship & Growing Up

Dumplin'

Dumplin’

Directed By: Anne Fletcher

Grade: B+

Dumplin’ is based on the Julie Murphy book of the same name and is showing on Netflix. Which is generally having a good run of YA adaptations. It’s about Willowdean Dixon a plus size girl who as form of protest (and grief) joins her mother’s beloved beauty pageant and inspires several other girls who normally wouldn’t to do the same.
