Movie Description:
When you feel like a queen, even a laundromat can be a palace. Marie "Mimi" Haist defied her adulterous husband and moved onto the streets in her 50s, living in parking lots and doorways until finding her "home" one stormy night between rows of washers in a Californian laundromat. Encouraged to stay by a more than generous laundry owner, Mimi's 'the past is the past' philosophy endeared her to regular fluff and fold clients and, after more than 20 years, Mimi has made some unlikely friends, ranging from local loves to Hollywood A-listers Zach Galifianakis and Renee Zellweger. Filmed over 5 years by barista/actor/director Yaniv Rokah while he worked at a cafe across the street, Queen Mimi is the story of an unlikely hero. Now 89, Mimi reminds us to never give in and never give up, and that if you ever find yourself in the gutter, to never stop looking at the stars.

Outstanding...Beyond words...

I was so curious...I had to "click" on this Netflix flick...I am so glad; so grateful and so happy, that I did...What an interesting, provocative, enlightening story of one woman's journey through life - moving forward always, with a glint in her eye and a smile on her face...WHO DOES THAT whose went through what she has????????

No one that I know of.

Zach G. - Kudos to your remarkable sense of right and love for WHAT'S RIGHT, by bringing her story to the light of we, the often, "stone faced" public. I cannot remember when I've seen such a moving rendition of an elderly person's life...Maybe? "On Golden Pond" not sure...In the meantime...

This was filmed in my hometown, I knew Montana well...LIVED on 11th street where the apt. was torn down to make way for affordable housing that dear Mimi would have no part of because of so many "elderly" she did not wish to be around.

The fact that a couple of people gave her an apt. to live in? PRICELESS. As is? This entire story of elder love...

Kudos to all who made it happen...I know that I am changed forever by seeing it. -And that is, very often, what it is all about on this journey we call life.

Lovely

I love Mimi, the movie was unbelievable. Life sometimes

MIMI: "Yesterday is the past and should stay there. I live for today!"

I just turned 81 and have been depressed about the few remaining years I probably have. Then tonight I discovered "Queen Mimi!" What a beautifully done documentary about an 88 year homeless woman who lived in a LaundroMat for over 20 yrs. after losing her family & house and every thing in it. She becomes a street person at age 50. It is so wonderfully filmed and edited and Mimi is such a positive character and ;loved by the Santa Monica, CA. neighborhood! Uplifting feisty and strong, You will want to be her friend too! Don't miss it.
