    Prescreen first popped up on our radar when we noticed the website was streaming our favorite Sundance Film Festival trailers in one place. It was a genius idea, so genius we didn't understand why nobody else had thought of it already.

    But what we didn't realize is that the site is also jam-packed with tons of awesome, under-the-radar indie gems ready to watch instantly. Case in point: the hilariously poignant new flick The Year Dolly Parton Was My Mom. With the quirkiness of Juno paired with the snarky comedy of Dirty Girl, the coming-of-age tale follows 11-year-old Elizabeth Alison Gray on her search for the truth about her past. Starring newcomer Julia Sarah Stone (who's about to break out in a big way) and featuring a voiceover from Ms. Parton herself, it's a sweet reminder that everyone's family is a little bit crazy.

    Because we loved the movie so much (and you, obviously), our friends at Prescreen are giving NYLON friends a first look at the film. Start watching here, and get ready to blast the Dolly Parton as soon as it's over.
