Mighty Fine

0 Love It

It’s the 1970s, and gruff factory owner Joe Fine (Chazz Palminteri) is moving his Holocaust survivor wife (Andie MacDowell) and two daughters from Brooklyn to New Orleans for a fresh start. Joe has a legendary temper that keeps his ladies in cowering check, while his business acumen is so off track that he borrows large sums of money from a local mafioso. What will it take for him to change his evil ways? Despite a committed performance from Palminteri (ripping through scenes like an aged bulldog), Debbie Goodstein’s loosely autobiographical drama is as nondescript as made-for-pennies independents come. Its most distinctive aspect, unfortunately, is the hilarious sight of MacDowell struggling to speak German-accented English.

This view of the movie is entirely outrageous. This movie reminded me of my childhood, being emotionally abused by my father and is a bright light at the end of a tunnel for me. I loved the film and will remember it as a way to show myself I was no the only one who was emotionally abused as a child.
