The movie filmed in and named after the town of Big Stone Gap, Virginia, is now on Netflix.

"Big Stone Gap" had its world premiere at the Virginia Film Festival on Nov. 6, 2014. It was then released by Picturehouse on Oct. 9, 2015. Then on Feb. 2, 2016, the film was released in Blu-Ray and DVD by Universal Pictures.

On Wednesday, the film began streaming on Netflix.

Starring a number of Hollywood stars — including Ashley Judd, Patrick Wilson and Jenna Elfman — the romantic comedy, based in 1970s-era Big Stone Gap, and written by former resident Adriana Trigiani, was filmed in the town in 2013.

The town celebrated the release last October with the stars, a parade and a red carpet showing.

The film revolves around a self-proclaimed spinster, portrayed by Judd, who runs the town pharmacy and directs the Trail of the Lonesome Pine outdoor drama. Just as she has resigned herself to life as "old maid," she is caught off-guard by a family secret, an unexpected marriage proposal and a once-in-a-lifetime visit to Big Stone Gap by movie legend Elizabeth Taylor. The various actors in the film portray some of her friends.
