For The Love of Dolly explores fandom and obsession, taking a poignant and heartfelt look at people who devote themselves to superstar Dolly Parton. Dolly Parton is more than a country singer. She is way of life!

This uniquely energetic film offers an in-depth look at five of Dolly Parton’s most enthusiastic and passionate fans including an adorable gay couple whose house is packed to the rafters with Dollybilia. Although seemingly quite different, the people in this film share a common purpose; their love of Dolly and a need to be close to her.

Dolly’s Hall of Fame career includes a record 42 top country albums, seven Grammy awards, 10 Country Music Awards and many more, but it is the woman behind the songs that inspires these adoring fans. For them, no sacrifice is too great: they quit jobs, rearrange schedules, all in anticipation of that moment when the woman they adore will glance at them or speak their names.

For the Love of Dolly is a thoughtful tale of an inspirational woman and those who have been truly inspired. Frameline distributes this title for educational sales. For home video purchase, rentals, and other inquiries, please visit Wolfe.
