It is hard to deny the fact that Montana is THE MOST BEAUTIFUL state in the U.S. And what better place to film a movie, than having Montana as the backdrop? Indie film "Mickey and the Bear" has gotten picked by both SXSW Film Fest and even the Cannes Film Festival.

According to Rotten Tomatoes, the synopsis of the film is:

In Anaconda, Montana, a strong-willed teenage girl navigates a loving but volatile relationship with her veteran father. In a desperate search for independence and her own identity, she risks family, heartbreak, and her standing in the only place she can call home. "Mickey and the Bear" is an essential coming-of-age story, told from the unique perspective of a strong, unrelenting female protagonist. In emancipating herself from the responsibilities imposed upon her by her father, Mickey's narrative is hopeful -- despite the pain of leaving Hank behind, she is finally free to pursue independence as a young woman.

 

The film had a limited release last week in theaters around the country. The Emerson Center for Arts and Culture will be holding a special screening of the film on December 4.
