Gabi Zietsman quote iconDumplin’ is a feel-good film without the clichés, spun together by a great director – Anne Fletcher – a cast that screams girl-power and a soundtrack that will make you sing along. If there’s something you’ve always wanted to do in your life, but society makes you feel like you can’t, then watch this movie for some good ol’ Jolene-spiration.
