Movie Review: ‘Mighty Oak’

Janel Parrish plays music manager Gina Jackson whose life is shattered when her brother and lead vocalist, Vaughn (Levi Dylan), is killed in a tragic accident. Ten years later, when a young guitar prodigy Oak Scoggins (Tommy Ragen) enters her orbit, she becomes convinced that this young man is the reincarnation of Vaughn, but is he?

STARRING: Janel Parrish, Tommy Ragen, Levi Dylan, Alexa PenaVega, Raven-Symone

MIGHTY OAK is a sure gem about reincarnation and an unbreakable bond between brother and sister. Gina’s life is utterly ripped apart when she loses her brother Vaughn in a horrific car accident. After 10 years, she finds out that an old friend has possession of her brother’s guitar and returns hoping to retrieve it. Only to find out that the guitar is now in the possession of 10-year old Oak Scoggins. When Gina walks in on Oak playing the guitar, she’s immediately moved and there’s just something special about this young guy. A bond naturally progresses between Gina and Oak, leaving Gina to believe that her brother Vaughn has returned to her in the body of Oak.

Mighty Oak is one of those heartfelt, yet still a feel good drama about family and losing a loved one. After the band disassembles due to the loss of their lead, Vaughn, it takes 10-year old Oak’s exuberant personality and distinct comparison to Vaughn to bring them all back together. Mighty Oak will make you laugh at times, then others may even shed a tear in a few spots. The acting is nothing short of phenomenal from the entire cast and this is surely a great family movie to watch during family movie night.
