Wow. What a great film; Quirky in the way of Harold and Maude, the mismatched, oddball personalities here are on an insane roadtrip to a California beauty pageant. The laughs come fast and furious all with an uncomfortable and dark tinge to them. Little Miss Sunshine though, is not a dark film. Brightly lit and with an optimism and even sentimentality that pervades throughout. It's a regfreshing approach to dark humor.
The cast can't be beat, especially Abigail Breslin as the young would be Little Miss Sunshine, Olive and the always fantastic Alan Arkin as Grandpa.
I give Little Miss Sunshine a 4 out of 4 and I reccommend seeing it in a crowded theatre as its a blast hearing the "I can't believe I'm laughing at this." laughs of the crowd.
What films have seen lately that are worth talking about?
