Writer/Director Yvette Plummer's film "A State of Mind" was shot in eleven days with a budget less than $100,000. An audience, however, would never know it. Plummer manages to deliver a funny, sad, and somewhat sobering look into the lives of three young Black women (an aspiring screenwriter, a social worker, and a struggling actress/beautician). This feature is not visually stunning. The lack of funds certainly did not allow for great visual effect. Yet it was impossible to ignore the characters and messages found in this film. Plummer does not preach, she demonstrates. If Plummer can deliver a winner with a five-figure budget, she should win an Oscar when the big bank finally arrives. "A State of Mind" was a thoroughly entertaining and remarkable achievement!!
