Heartstrings is an acquired taste, it's true. But [Dolly] Parton herself is a universally adored figure that you wish were available to call you sugar and sing you a lullaby as you softly cry yourself to sleep for the 280th time this year.
Heartstrings is a great conceit tangled up in a cheap execution. By stretching Parton's songs beyond their breaking point, and stuffing the minutes with tangential fluff, the producers end up softening the impact of her heartbreaking stories.
