Mighty Fine opens in select theaters on May 25.
Chazz Palminteri plays Joe Fine, a dad who deals with anger issues. He moves his family from Brooklyn to New Orleans. It is not stated in the film, but after watching, he reminded me of a person with bipolar disorder.
Andie MacDowell plays his wife who tries to keep peace between Joe and his girls. At times, I wanted to yell at her and wonder why she wouldn’t say more for the girls. Butm then again, I’m sure she must have been afraid.
Overall, I like this independent film because it left me wanting to know more. I was interested to know what life was like in Brooklyn. I also wanted to know more at the end of the movie. I connected to the movie because there are times in everyone’s lives where family life might not be that pleasant. But, in the end, they are always your family and you love them no matter what. You try to see the best in them and help them as much as you can. I am sure many of us have felt like the younger daughter, Natalie, (played by Jodelle Ferland) and sometimes saying nothing. And there are other times where we have felt like the older daughter Maddie, (played by Rainey Qualley) and want to shout back.
I was able to view this film in advance at home and after the film, I participated in a live chat with Chazz and Rainey. It was great be able to to discuss the film in real time and have them answer our questions. I thought the idea of being in your home, watching a film that hasn’t come out yet and getting to talk to the actors was an awesome experience.
