Every bit of story line is interesting and entertaining

This adaptation is dramatic, interesting, and a great period piece. I really like that the cast of this film is filled with recognizable actors and actresses who make it a great film.

In a small town in Virginia, the life of middle aged spinster, Ave Marie (Ashley Judd) is shaken up and permanently altered when, after a semi-anticipated unfortunate event, she discovers a family secret that has been buried for a long time. While she tries to figure out why things are the way they are, her eyes are opened to situations and experiences that she never noticed. Ave Marie makes a life altering decision and as a result the whole town unravels.

Since this film is a period piece, I was really intrigued as I watched it. I love all of the romantic aspects that are displayed throughout this film. Along with the romance and bits drama, Big Stone Gap offers great comedy, which really separates the dramatic pieces nicely and gives this film great balance. My favorite character would have to be Fleeta (Whoopi Goldberg) because of the comedy she gives to the film and also because of the boldness and confidence in her character.

Over all, I cannot say this I have a favorite scene, every bit of story line is interesting and entertaining, I will say this all the scenes with Fleeta are very nice to watch due to the way her character interacts with others. Another aspect that I greatly enjoy is the wardrobe, because of how much it's involved in this story, the clothing that is worn, adds different details to each and every character and their personality. Even though sometimes I am a bit confused about the plot line, everything clears up in the end.

A message that I found in Big Stone Gap is that life is always changing, and nothing is set in stone. Another message is that sometimes life is unfair, and we shouldn't dwell on all the inconveniences in life for too long.

I recommend this film for ages 9 to 18, due to its slight suggestive content. I give it 4 out of 5 stars, because of its comedy, romance, and cast.

Big Stone Gap is in theaters October 9th, so please check it out. Reviewed by Brianna B., Age 15, KIDS FIRST! Film Critic.

Ashley Judd miscast

A nice, easy going story with a bit of a 'feel good' factor. However, Ashley Judd looked too old to play a 40 yr old. This was actually very distracting as she looked more like 50. Surely they could've found another actress nearer 40 who could've played this role?

Patrick Wilson was excellent as always and perfectly cast in his role.

Painful - waste of a stellar cast

If you can accept that Virginia coal mining town can have a miner who looks like Patrick Wilson and a pharmacy owner who looks like Ashley Judd then you might enjoy this movie. Whoopi Goldberg is totally out of place here.

But unrealistic looks aside, the story is quite painful. He is too young for her and she looks unhappy. I've always been a fan of Ashley Judd and praise her for not having plastic surgery to look younger. She is still very slim but there is a frown on her face and a bit of puffiness that is a little distressing to see on someone who was so beautiful. Maybe a romantic role wasn't right for her. Patrick Wilson looks too healthy and wholesome for the role - long sideburns don't a hillbilly make.

The touching gesture of selling his truck to bring over her family kind of rings fake. It would have been better if she just took a trip to Italy.

Don't bother with this one.
