Set in the 1970s, “Mighty Fine” is the story of Joe Fine, a charismatic, high spirited man, who relocates his family-wife Stella, daughters Nathalie and Maddie – from Brooklyn to New Orleans, in search of a better life. Only to have it all go very wrong.
I recently had the pleasure of attending an online advanced screening of Mighty Fine.
The setting is prefect, and the 70’s styles and home decor leap off the screen bringing back memories of a decade long behind. Reminding me that the 70’s not only had hideous, but some awesome fashion! The film is based on a common story of anger and abuse that most of us have had touch our life at one point or another. Most of the cast does a good job, as does the director, with what they have. The script I felt could have been better and suffered with a few major loop holes. I would have preferred the film be a little longer, than to be left hanging with out answers. I tend to be fan of independent films, and can appreciate and still have great love for them when they are not perfect. Sadly, Mighty Fine just doesn’t fall into that category for me. Of course you should see the film for self. That to me is the beauty of entertainment – so many people can leave the same film with a different experience and opinion.
Mighty Fine opens in select theaters on May 25th. Click here to find a theater near you.
Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Mighty Fine and the distributor. I received access to an online showing of the film and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
