Little Miss Sunshine
« on: August 25, 2006, 06:44:58 am »
anyone seen it?  I've heard great things about it and will check it out this weekend.

Olive (Abigail Breslin) is a little girl with a dream: winning the Little Miss Sunshine contest. Her family wants her dream to come true, but they are so burdened with their own quirks, neuroses, and problems that they can barely make it through a day without some disaster befalling them. Olive's father Richard (Greg Kinnear) is a flop as a motivational speaker, and is barely on speaking terms with her mother (Toni Collette). Her uncle Frank (Steve Carell), a renowned Proust scholar, has attempted suicide following an unsuccessful romance with a male graduate student. Her brother Dwayne (Paul Dano), a fanatical follower of Nietzsche, has taken a vow of silence, which allows him to escape somewhat from the family whose very presence torments him. And Olive's grandfather (Alan Arkin) is a ne'er-do-well with a drug habit, but at least he enthusiastically coaches Olive in her contest talent routine. Circumstances conspire to put the entire family on the road together with the goal of getting Olive to the Little Miss Sunshine contest in far off California.

I went to the theater to see The Descent and ran into my cousin and his wife after they'd seen this movie. They said it was absolutely hilarious. So, I wanna see it too =D

This was by far my favourite film of 2006. I LOVED it! I can't wait for the DVD to come out here - haven't checked in a while but I don't think it has yet! - this one's def one to buy :)

there's only four seasons
and this one's almost gone
these nights feel so good
but this one's almost gone

Yes... this film made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.... it says so much without trying to hard... there's none of that Hollywood gloss  :D

This movie is one my favorites. As my friend says, "They put the 'fun' in 'dysfunctional'"...
