Dumplin’

Starring Jenifer Aniston as the ex-beauty pageant queen who now runs a local beauty pageant for teens and also happens to be the mother of teenage daughter ‘Willowdean’. Willowdean decides to enter her mother’s beauty pageant despite not really ‘fitting the bill’ to ‘prove a point’ to the mother who affectionately still calls her Dumplin. The small town soon gets behind ‘Will’ as other girls decide to sign up for the contest. An affectionate comedy film with serious undertones of self-confidence that any teenage girl should be exposed to in this world of continuous body-shaming.
