Worth not only directs 'Seeking Dolly Parton' (SDP) but he also wrote, produced and starred in the the romantic, comedy, drama. Rounding out the trio of his leading cast is Russian-born American, Anya Monzikova (Days of Our Lives/Deal or No Deal).
The film centers on a lesbian couple wanting to have a baby and the ex-boyfriend who steps up to help to unexpected results for all.
It's at this point my eye-rolling began because usually films of this nature follow one and only one formula. The one getting pregnant usually rekindles her romantic feeling towards the ex and subsequently leaves their female partner for said male counterpart. The film of course will be supplemented with the appropriate amounts of lesbian-sex to satisfy its male audience.
However, this preconceived impression would be wrong. It should take you no more than 10 minutes of film before you would change your mind, just as I did.
Strong performances by all three leads is only complimented by Worth's thoughtful script, which allows each character to face their demons while forming unlikely friendships and settling unrealistic expectations.
With the market now awash with so many films tackling our genre, selections can be made on quality and not quantity. I suggest you get Seeking Dolly Parton for its quality.
Seeking Dolly Parton will be available for viewing online as of Sept 25th.
