LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE




Comedy/drama

PRINCIPAL CAST MEMBERS
Greg Kinnear: Richard Hoover the dad, a motivational speaker
Toni Collette: Sheryl the mom
Paul Dano: Dwayne the teenage son
Abigail Breslin: Olive the 9-year-old daughter, a beauty pageant addict

REVIEW
Good performances by all and crisp editing make this an entertaining, sometimes funny movie that weaves together an eclectic family group all working together, albeit somewhat reluctantly for some. Although there are a lot of chuckles at the family’s misadventures, it’s not hard to see the reality of it either.

CLASSIFICATION
for some sexual remarks, drug use and language (quite a few f-words)

P.S.
Marcel Proust (July 1871 – November 1922) was a French intellectual, novelist, essayist and critic, best known as the author of In Search of Lost Time.

I was pleasantly surprised how entertaining this movie was. The fast pace of a dysfunctional family travelling together in a VW bus on an adventure kept me amused for the entire length of the movie.
