Dumplin' | Official Trailer | Netflix.
Willowdean Dickson who is nicknamed "Dumplin" by her mother, Rosie (Jennifer Aniston), and called "Will" by everybody else, spends much of her childhood primarily raised and taught by her Aunt Lucy, who introduces Will to Ellen Dryver (Odeya Rush), who becomes Will's best friend. Lucy instills a love of Dolly Parton and self-confidence in Will, but six months before Will and Ellen start their final year of high school, Lucy dies. Rosie is a former beauty queen and celebrity in their small Texas town. Will is often faced with confusion when people find out Rosie is her mother, due to Will's heavyset figure. Due to her mother's various time commitments, Will doesn't spend much time with Rosie, who is dependent on Will to accompany her to various events. Will finds pageant season - a big event in their town - a ridiculous hoopla, and finds her mother's participation as pageant judge and her emphasis on beauty eyeroll worthy, and doesn't participate in or encourage either. Rosie remains a judge in the town's annual Miss Teen Bluebonnet Pageant every year, an event girls in town start preparing for months in advance. Following Lucy's death, Rosie finds difficulty connecting with Will, who is resentful of and embarrassed by her mother's world.
On Will and Ellen's first day of school, Will is suspended after defending another overweight girl, Millie (Maddie Baillio), from a bully. Following this, Will accuses Rosie of being resentful of Will for her looks and is upset when Rosie insinuates that Lucy would still be alive if she had taken better care of her health. After finding Lucy's application to try out for the Miss Teen Bluebonnet Pageant when she was 16, Will decides to try out in an act of a "protest in heels". After Will signs up, Millie - who is enthusiastic and pitied by Will - decides to sign up as well. Hannah Perez (Bex Taylor-Klaus), an edgy feminist at their school, also signs up. Rosie interprets Will's application as a mockery of the pageant, and warns Will that pageants are harder than she thinks. In preparation for the pageant, Will stubbornly refuses to participate and is angry and jealous of Millie and Ellen's willingness to do so. After telling Ellen to quit, the pair quarrel, with Ellen upset that Will is so untrusting of her.
