Adriana Trigiani, in her debut as screenwriter/director, brings her best-selling novel Big Stone Gap to the movies. Big Stone Gap, shot entirely on location in Trigiani's hometown, is the story of proud working people and their lives in a coal mining town nestled in the southwest corner of Virginia, deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Ave Maria Mulligan (Ashley Judd), the town's self-proclaimed spinster, has resigned herself to a quiet life of singlehood and being useful. She works in her family's pharmacy, delivers the prescriptions herself, and directs the town's annual outdoor drama until one day she learns of a long-buried family secret that changes the course of her life forever.

Ratings and Reviews
Flat comedy about small-town '70s life lacks laughs.
