Mighty Fine a wonderful Independent Film movie is opening in select theaters on May 25 2012

Have you ever seen a movie that moved you? Either made you sad or just made you mad?

Well the move Mighty Fine does just that.  

Here is the synopsis of the movie:

The film, based on writer/director Debbie Goodstein's childhood experiences, touches upon the controversial and difficult roles that anger and aggression can play in a family. Mighty Fine tells the story of a 1970's family, who move from Brooklyn to New Orleans in search of a better, more prosperous life. 

The movie paints the picture of Joe Fine's (Chazz Palminteri) love for his wife (Andie MacDowell) and daughters (Jodelle Ferland and Rainey Qualley), juxtaposed against his explosive, rage-filled side, which he often takes out on those closest to him. 

The emotional abuse leaves Stella, Maddie, and Natalie conflicted between their love for this charismatic, generous man, and their vulnerability in the face of his unpredictable mood swings.  Chazz Palminteri gives the performance of a lifetime, that will mesmerize and haunt viewers.

My Take:

 I was very fortunate to see a sneak peak of the movie Mighty Fine, in my opinion this a story of survival, surviving torment. Surviving on the strength of your family and the strength inside yourself. What is going on in the mind of someone who is unbalanced? You just never know what may happen. What person will show up today, the great father who treats you with lavish gifts, or the terror you want to run away from?

How terrible it would be to grow up with an unbalance father. One scene Joe was terrifying the kids by threatening them with a gun and actually firing the gun it was terrifying. At times I was sickened by the way Joe treated the girls. Chazz Palminteri who played the father Joe was so wonderful in this role, he made me hate the character… He was Joe, he just became this terror. What a wonderful actor.  My favorite character of the movie was the youngest daughter Natalie played by Jodelle Ferland. Natalie reminded me a bid of myself, being the youngest and trying to fit in.

These days we see it as bi-polar, and there is medicine for help with issues that arise. But this film was set in the 1970’s a time when mental illness was just swept under the carpet… This was not something that was looked at, you just got mad sometimes, sometimes you were really mad, and that was that. That was normal, just turn the other cheek tomorrow will be a better day.

I don’t want to give too much of the movie away, just make sure to check it out in the theater. It is a movie you will never forget.
