Adopt Films has acquired U.S. theatrical rights to Debbie Goodstein’s semi-autobiographical coming-of-age comedy-drama Mighty Fine, the distributor’s co-managing executive Jeff Lipsky announced. Set in the 1970s, Mighty Fine is the story of Joe Fine, a high-spirited man who relocates his family — wife Stella, and daughters Nathalie and Maddie — from Brooklyn to New Orleans in search of a better life and palatial home, but his dreams and extravagance far exceed his means. Chazz Palminteri (Bullets Over Broadway, A Bronx Tale) and Andie MacDowell (sex lies and videotape, Groundhog Day) play the parents, and Jodelle Ferland (The Twilight Saga: Eclipse, Tideland) and Rainey Qualley (MacDowell’s daughter, in her debut) play the daughters. Adopt plans a 2012 Memorial Day weekend platform rollout.
