MacDowell Remembers Mother's Day

MacDowell Remembers Mother's Day
No, this is not an Amazing Spider-Man-style lightning reboot of horror remake Mother’s Day. Nor, as far as we can tell, is it another one of those rom-coms built around a particular holiday. The new Mother's Day does sound like it’ll feature a big ensemble cast though, and Andie MacDowell, along with real-life daughter Rainey Qualley, has now signed on.So far, writer-director Paul Duddridge has recruited one mother / daughter team in Susan Sarandon and Eva Amurri Martino, alongside Christina Ricci, for a tale that follows the relationship between 12 mothers and their daughters. Exactly what the plot will involve has not been revealed, but you’ve got to figure on a mix of hostile and supportive mother-sprog teams.This isn’t the first time that MacDowell has shared the screen with her progeny: she acted alongside Qualley in Mighty Fine, which arrived in Us cinemas last month but

Mighty Fine | Review

Mighty Clichéd: Goodstein’s Debut a Muted Effort We’ve Seen Before

Oh the glorious 1970’s, how we love to explore the vaguely outlined state of mind evoked in thee. Debbie Goodstein jettisons us there for her debut, Mighty Fine, a singularly ineffective and indistinct coming of age tale that moonlights as a character study of (what we’re supposed to assume is) the now extinct patriarchal breadwinner. The trouble is, Debbie, what you’ve given us coasts by solely on good intentions. And we all know what road is paved with those.

The film opens with the Fine family relocating from Brooklyn, where Joe Fine (Chazz Palminteri) was born and raised, to New Orleans for economic purposes. Joe runs a fabric company, Mighty Fine Fabrics, with its headquarters based out of New Orleans. Due to the harsh economy, Joe wants his be closer to his business, which just happens

Chazz Palminteri: The Hollywood Interivew

Chazz Palminteri Goes to Bed Hungry

By Alex Simon

Chazz Palminteri’s life is one of those classic show biz stories that, dare we say it, is the stuff from which movies are made. Born and raised in the Bronx, Palminteri toiled for years as a struggling stage, film and television actor before finally being plucked from obscurity by Robert De Niro, who saw his off-Broadway autobiographical play A Bronx Tale, a one-man show in which Palminteri played a host of colorful characters he grew up and around in his Bronx neighborhood during the 1950s and ‘60s, where his life was shaped by two mentors: his straight-laced working class father and a local mobster named Sonny.

The movie version of A Bronx Tale was a hit with audiences and critics alike upon its premiere in 1993 and Palminteri hasn’t stopped working since. His latest turn, in Debbie Goodstein’s autobiographical film Mighty Fine,

Andie MacDowell and Rainey Qualley: The Hollywood Interview

Real-life mother and daughter Andie MacDowell and Rainey Qualley in Mighty Fine.

Andie MacDowell and Rainey Qualley Prove Mighty Fine

By Alex Simon

When you see the opening moments of Debbie Goodstein’s writing/directing debut Mighty Fine and catch your first glimpse of newcomer Rainey Qualley playing Andie MacDowell’s daughter, your first thoughts will most likely be “Wow! That’s great casting.” Truth be told, 23 year-old Qualley is, in real life, MacDowell’s daughter, the second of her three children.

Mighty Fine, which MacDowell co-produced, tells Goodstein’s autobiographical story of a Jewish family from Brooklyn who relocate to New Orleans in the early 1970s, led by their charismatic, but troubled father (Chazz Palminteri) who is always one step away from millionaire status or complete destitution. The family drama, released by Adopt Films, arrives in theaters May 25.

Mighty Fine Movie Review

Mighty Fine Movie Review
Title: Mighty Fine Director: Debbie Goodstein Starring: Chazz Palminteri, Andie MacDowell, Rainey Qualley, Jodelle Ferland A deadly dull melodrama of familial dysfunction and emotional abuse in the face of patriarchal anger management, writer-director Debbie Goodstein’s “Mighty Fine” leans heavily on autobiographical inspiration for dramatic heft and connection, a tactic that proves ill-advised. A somewhat drab and unimaginative telling further dents this offering of already rather limited psychological insights and pat conclusions and catharses. Set in the 1970s, “Mighty Fine” centers around a so-surnamed husband and father, small businessman Joe (Chazz Palminteri), who uproots his family and moves them from Brooklyn to New Orleans. His wife Stella (Andie MacDowell) is a [ Read More ]

Exclusive: Chazz Palminteri Talks Mighty Fine, New Play Human
Operating both on screen and off, Oscar nominee Chazz Palminteri has carved out a career playing both to and against his perceived tough guy strengths. In his new film, writer-director Debbie Goodstein’s 1970s-set “Mighty Fine,” the 60-year-old actor plays charismatic, high-spirited family man Joe Fine, who relocates his wife Stella (Andie MacDowell) and two daughters (Jodelle Ferland and Rainey Qualley) from Brooklyn to New Orleans, in search of a better life. With his apparel business experiencing hard times, however, Joe’s depression and anger starts to manifest itself more and more in emotionally abusive outbursts.

Mighty Fine: Film Review

Mighty Fine: Film Review
A rather clichéd coming-of-ager, writer-director Debbie Goodstein’s “semi-autobiographical” feature directorial debut Mighty Fine has heart to spare, but little new to say. Even with a planned counter-programming strategy, it stands a slim chance of carving out much of a niche from an anticipated Memorial Day weekend limited release. Photos: The Scene at Santa Barbara International Film Festival Set in the 70s, Mighty Fine follows Joe Fine (Chazz Palminteri), a Brooklyn garment manufacturer, as he moves his family to New Orleans, closer to the factory that produces his company’s clothing line.

MacDowell 'Cringed' Over Daughter's Abuse Role

  • WENN
MacDowell 'Cringed' Over Daughter's Abuse Role
Actress Andie MacDowell struggled to watch her daughter Rainey Qualley play an abuse victim in upcoming movie Mighty Fine, insisting it made her "cringe" to see the emotional performance.

Qualley makes her debut as MacDowell's eldest daughter Maddie in the forthcoming film, about a man who struggles with bipolar disorder and the effect it has on his family.

But MacDowell reveals their first shoot together was far from easy, admitting she felt uncomfortable when Qualley acted out her intense scenes.

She tells the Daily Mail's Weekend magazine, "In (Mighty Fine), I'm married to a man who's bipolar and takes it out on our daughter, and I don't protect her. The role was very demanding, very abusive. What my daughter went through makes me cringe."

Footloose Interview: Andie MacDowell Cuts Loose

  • Reel Movie News
Andie MacDowell is stepping into Dianne Wiest’s shoes as the preacher’s wife in the Craig Brewer remake of Footloose. Much is being made of the effort Kenny Wormald has in jumping into the dancing shoes of Kevin Bacon, but one could argue that it is just as difficult to take on a role originated by an Oscar winner.

MacDowell stars opposite Dennis Quaid as his wife, something she has done before in Dinner with Friends. “We’re an old married couple,” MacDowell joked to Movie Fanatic for our Footloose interview.

Brewer is bringing Footloose to a whole new generation and one of the aspects that most spoke to MacDowell was how the director kept the heart and soul of the original while simultaneously making it a film of the 21st century.

MacDowell dishes working with the young cast, and how in particular, she took it upon herself to
