HATS OFF

HATS OFF profiles the beauty and eccentricities of one extraordinary woman, 93-year-old actress Mimi Weddell.

A cross between the grace and style of Katherine Hepburn and the smoky wisdom of Lou Reed, Mimi Weddell's own slogan to live by, "rise above it", captures the essence of this truly iconic American silhouette: a woman whose daily routine mocks the traditional American image of old age and instead flaunts a 'can-do, will-do' attitude in the face of convention. From her daily trips to the auditions and cattle calls for small roles in television, movies and print campaigns, to her weekly gym and dance workouts, Mimi Weddell herself rises above the mundane confines of a daily life, to reach for the stars and fulfill her dreams.

A gentle examination of family, commitment and ultimately the dreams which drive us, HATS OFF is a documentary to inspire, celebrate and cheer for all the Mimi's in each of our lives who move us to be more than we are.

HATS OFF, a Canobie Films production, is directed by Jyll Johnstone.

Running Time: 84 Minutes Not Rated
