  • Little Miss Sunshine
    Ed Howard

    This dark road trip comedy is the rare film that presents an affectionate, non-condescending portrait of the "disfunctional" family trope. This family definitely fits that mold: a drugged-out grandfather; a gay, suicidal Proust scholar; a philosophy-inspired teen who refuses to speak; a failing motivational speaker. But the family are all treated with such affection and nuance that they move much beyond their stereotypical origins to become a fully functioning and compelling family unit. Both funny and touching, with a hilarious finale that truly celebrates the subversive charm of this anti-mainstream bunch.

Please note this is a region 2 DVD and will require a region 2 (Europe) or region Free DVD Player in order to play. Heartwarming comedy follows a dysfunctional family on a frantic road trip across the US in a decrepit Volkswagen van to deliver their youngest to a chld beauty pageant on time. Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin) is an ordinary little girl, perhaps even on the plain side as far as looks go but she has a dream cast in stone - to win the Little Miss Sunshine child beauty pageant. Her heroin-snorting grandfather (Alan Arkin) coaches her in some rather unorthodox and grown-up techniques - when he's not on the nod. Her mum (Toni Collette) and dad (Greg Kinnear) are at each other's throat because dad has sunk their entire worth into a self-help business that's a total non-starter. Her philosophically-constipated older brother (Paul Dano) has taken a vow of nihilistic silence and her suicidal gay uncle (Steve Carell) has come to stay for a while after yet another failed attempt to cash out early. Has Olive got a chance? No, she hasn't, but it's the journey that matters, not the destination - ultimately the message of this touching comedy.
