New Movie Release: Miss Arizona (And Giveaway!)

Hey folks, it's been a while! First of all, I have some great reviews and some giveaways coming up - so be on the lookout! First up is for everyone who is in need of an inspirational movie about becoming who you are meant to be. It's a movie called MISS ARIZONA. Here's a bit about the movie (as well as some photos from the film) and you will know why this is your must-see movie of the summer! (Well, what's left of the summer)

About the Movie, Miss Arizona



Rose Raynes (Johanna Braddy) was crowned Miss Arizona -- 15 years ago. Now a bored housewife trapped in a less-than-ideal marriage, she accepts an invitation to teach a life skills class at a women's shelter. Digging out the relics of her pageant queen past, Rose attempts to share her platform speech with a room of four disinterested women dodging abusive exes. But when trouble shows up at the shelter, what the women really need is for Rose's shiny SUV to keep them out of harm's way, so they embark on a wild, all-night adventure through the streets of LA. From a quick trip to the 'drug store' to an impromptu drag show, the women soon discover that inner strength, and a little help from your friends, can be the key to discovering who you are meant to be.



Inspired by the Women's March in fall 2016, writer/director Autumn McAlpin ( Waffle Street, Shadow) and award-winning producer DeAnna Cooper worked together to assemble a cast and crew that were over 70% women and/or people of color as well as putting together an impressive all-female soundtrack with hits by musicians including P!nk, Lorde, Shania Twain, Donna Summer, MILCK, Kacey Musgraves and more, all of whom loved the pro-women message of the film.



Richard Roeper of the Chicago Sun Times calls MISS ARIZONA, "a well-made first time feature" and says "thanks to some well-crafted dialogue and the strong performances, we can't help but get choked up when the fish-out-of-water Rose finds her footing with the help of her unexpected new friends." And Kimber Myers of The Los Angeles Times says, "Miss Arizona sparks -- particularly with its spirited cast" and that "the of-the-moment message of women's inner strength is laudable and empowering".
