Movie Info

Carnelle Scott (Holly Hunter) is a restless Mississippi girl looking for a life change. She decides to enter a beauty pageant, which her cousin Elain (Mary Steenburgen) had won years before. Despite a lack of support from those close to her, including conniving cousin Delmount (Tim Robbins), Carnelle remains determined. She enlists the help of a seamstress (Alfre Woodard) to outfit her for the competition, while rebuffing the advances of predatory men, as she aims to bring home the crown.

Audience Reviews for Miss Firecracker

  • Feb 13, 2021
    Perfectly cast and I promise you that very little of this movie is exaggerated.

    Two big names, Holly Hunter and Tim Robbins, unfortunately do not save this boring piece of lackluster storytelling (based on a play), except perhaps Tim Robbin's character defending his sister's honor at the judging pageant towards the end.

    Nice slice of Americana.
