What the Press is saying about “Hats Off”

“Mimi Weddell is one of a kind and perhaps even a freak of nature, albeit an irresistibly charming one. It’s obviously not all because of her drive and determination, but we come away from Johnstone’s film believing attitude may play a role in the theater of at least one woman’s life.” ~ San Francisco Chronicle, David Wiegand

“Mimi is indefatigable and undefeatable. She will inspire and enchant you, I guarantee.” ~ Jennifer Merlin, About.com Guide

“Mimi has some very definite ideas about how one should live one’s life, most of which could have emerged from the mouth of Auntie Mame and landed on a needlepoint throw pillow (“Rise above it!” is a favorite maxim).” ~  TV Guide

“Mimi is truly an iconic American original, rising above the mundane and difficult confines of her own daily life to reach for the stars and fulfill her dreams. Hats Off captures the essence of this most unusual woman.” ~ IMDb

“Lively and touching.”  ~ New York Magazine
