Movie Info

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.

  • Every shot in Mickey and the Bear is artfully composed... The performances are also quite strong. Morrone is especially affecting as the put-upon Mickey.... James Badge Dale is potent as Hank.
