    Mighty Fine Movie Coming out

    May 20, 2012 By · No Comments

    The Mighty Fine Movie is coming out and I honestly can’t wait to see it. I almost got to see it this weekend however my computer would not work with the website. But I still want you to know about it. This is a film by Debbie Goodstein-Rosenfeld from her memories of her own childhood and her dad. It appears that her father, Joe Fine (played by Chazz Palminteri) had moments of bipolar disease and how the family dealt with it. The movie hits theaters May 25, 2012 so get ready.

    This movie is rated r due to the drama that is involved in it. Mighty Fine is all about how a father moves his family from Brooklyn to New Orleans, Louisana for his job. As many of us know a move of any kind can be stressful on kids especially when they already have friends. Stella, the mother, (played by Andy MacDowell) reminds me a lot of myself she is soft spoken and basically does what Joe tells her to do. His two teen daughters, Maddie (16) and Natalie have completely different personalities as you would figure, one is more outspoken the younger daughter is an aspiring poet telling the story.

    I’m a bit upset because I couldn’t see this for the premiere however I will definitely watch it. To see if you are in an area that will be showing Mighty Fine check the link, my area is not. As I stated before he seems to have some type of bipolar disorder or mood swings for sure. He constantly yells at his girls/wife but then will feel guilty and present them with gifts, the typical signs of an abuser. He is also known to spend money even when he doesn’t have it which only puts his family in worse conditions. It is definitely a movie that looks like it can teach families something, abuse is a topic not many talk about but should.


    The story of “Mighty Fine” is fictional, but it draws to a great extent on writer/director Debbie Goodstein’s vivid memories of her childhood. “My father had anger issues, ups and downs, and living in his world could be a bit of a rollercoaster ride,” says Goodstein. “He loved his family but had self-destructive impulses and a rage that made life with him unpredictable and sometimes very scary.” Many of Goodstein’s friends also had fathers similar to her own, and she contrived the character of Joe Fine as a composite. Goodstein sees Joe as a creature of his time, someone who couldn’t exist today: “Joe Fine is the king of his castle, like so many men of the seventies. But even then, things were changing rapidly, and men like Joe, with all their bravado and patriarchal dominance, were poised for extinction. Today, with so many women in the workplace, that castle has become more of a stronghold of equanimity.”

    “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, however I was unable to view it but did receive a promotional item as a thank you for participating.”
