      Ron D I thought it was a really good movie Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/09/23 Full Review Barry S This is listed as a comedy/ drama. This is not a comedy! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review brent m What would you do if you were to suddenly find yourself a single parent with no savings or steady work? Unfortunately, there's a good chance you might become homeless in relatively short order. And, if so, how would you handle those circumstances for you and your dependents? For a widowed young mother, it means setting up a tent in a secluded location and telling your child that you're both on an extended camping trip. So it is in this pandemic era comedy-drama about living by one's wits to survive and to attempt to come up with the cash needed to secure a roof over one's head, a goal with both critical financial and time constraints. Spread out over the course of one long, challenge-ridden day, this story follows mom as she struggles to meet a tight deadline to come up with the money for a new apartment by nightfall. Will she make it? And what sacrifices might she have to make to do so? Writer-actor-directors Kelley Kali and Angelique Molina have come up with a troubling yet thoughtful and playful narrative that poses an array of insightful "what if" questions, some humorous, some desperately unnerving, all with variously underlying currents of peril, whimsy and hard choices. Some might contend that it's implausible for so many diverse developments to emerge within the course of a single day, but, as many of us can well attest, stranger things have been known to happen, so there's no reason to rule them out here, either. And, if such a scenario were to indeed materialize, let's hope that it's as touching, hopeful and fun as this one is. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member God is good and the reason we can make great movies that many can relate too. It was a good movie, and it would have been great with a few Hallelujahs and a scripture or two. :-) I enjoyed the story line and the acting was good as well. ~Coco #Yeshua Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member The movie was sad, but hopeful and with a happy ending, all that you ever asked for in the movie. It have some twists and turns, but I like the way the movie was put together good job Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Emma Steen Time Out This is a refreshingly realistic story about resilience, familial love and adversity. Rated: 4/5 Mar 10, 2023 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) A little rough around the edges certainly, but spirited and authentic, this is a low-budget African American indie that has a kinship with the Dardenne brothers’ brand of breadline urgency. Rated: 3/5 Mar 5, 2023 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Kali produces an effortlessly sympathetic central turn and the movie, shot along the empty streets of 2020 and resolutely “about” the pandemic, perfectly captures the odd sci-fi strangeness of that near history. Rated: 3/5 Mar 4, 2023 Full Review Molly Moss Radio Times While this is an honourable attempt to capture the hardships of the pandemic, it is sorely lacking in drive and energy. Rated: 2/5 Mar 9, 2023 Full Review Saskia Baron The Arts Desk I’m Fine (Thanks for Asking) is a reminder of how American independent film-makers can portray life on the margins with energy and ingenuity. Rated: 3/5 Mar 3, 2023 Full Review Alexa Dalby Dog and Wolf The America of this film is a cruel society that neglects or devours its poor or unlucky people -- unless they are as strong as Danny.
