STORY LINE

A coming-of-age story, told from the unique perspective of a strong, unrelenting female protagonist, Mickey and the Bear marks actress Annabelle Attanasio’s directorial debut.  Headstrong teenager Mickey Peck (Camila Morrone) navigates a loving but volatile relationship with her veteran father (James Badge Dale).  Faced with the day to day responsibility of keeping her household afloat while her father falls apart, Mickey secretly fantasizes of going to college on the west coast, and finally living life on her own terms. When Hank’s controlling, jealous behavior turns destructive, Mickey must decide between familial obligation and personal fulfillment as she puts everything on the line to claim her own independence.
