Seriously Red

Raylene 'Red' Delaney is a vivacious but, at times, misguided redhead, who pours herself a cup of ambition and trades her nine to five career in real estate for a life under the spotlight as a Dolly Parton impersonator. At first average and then fabulous, her tumultuous journey is full of fake hair, artificial boobs and a romantic liaison with Kenny Rogers. The cost of success however is far greater than Red ever anticipated and in order to find herself she needs to lose herself in Dolly. The film features a catalogue of classic Dolly Parton hits, as well as Elvis, Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond, Kylie Minogue and more.
