Dolly Parton: Here I Am (2019)

Genre: Documentary, Music
Director: Francis Whately
Cast: Dabney Coleman, Mac Davis, David Dotson, Jerry Douglas
Runtime: 90 min

With Dolly Parton’s upcoming Christmas on the Square, Netflix has managed to pick up the license to last year’s documentary looking into the famed country artist.

Here’s what you can expect from the doc:

“Dolly Parton leads a moving, musical journey in this documentary that details the people and places who have helped shape her iconic career.”

Coming to Netflix today on VOD, DVD and Netflix is the premiere of the ninth American Pie movie, Girls Rules.

Universal likes milking its franchises such as Fast & Furious and American Pie is the comedy equivalent. It serves as a spin-off (the fifth of its kind) to the main movies.

We follow four girls who harness their girl power in their senior year to get exactly what they want.


Saturday Church (2017)

Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Musical

Our final pick of the day is an LGBTQ movie that scooped up high praise from critics with it currently sitting on a 93% RottenTomato score plus a 72 on Metacritic.

“A teen struggling with gender identity and family tensions seeks hope and support in New York City’s underground LGBTQ ballroom community.”
