Contemporary film and fiction are filled with portraits of men who wield power, go to war, and lead others. In the long run, however, it is ordinary people who make the world go round. They do useful work, raise their families, and try to pass on something of value to the next generation. Their heroism is the quiet heroism of making do. Few good stories exist about them, but The Dollmaker is one such example.

This engaging drama centers around an Appalachian woman who struggles to "deal gently and justly" with her family and herself when they move from rural Kentucky to urban Detroit during World War II. Jane Fonda stars in this film based on Harriette Arnow's 1954 best-selling novel which literary critic Joyce Carol Oates has called "our most unpretentious American masterpiece."

The goal for most citizens has been to achieve all that money can buy and to pass on to one's offspring the fruits of the American Dream. Some people, however, have questioned the majority's assumption that "the good life" can be measured by material possessions. They have emphasized alternatives, often settling upon an outwardly simple life that is inwardly rich. Such is the position of Gertie Nevels. The Dollmaker offers viewers an opportunity to clarify their own definition of "the good life," to explore family matters, to examine the contrasts between country and city living, and to discuss some of the challenges of individualism.
