Little Miss Sunshine (15)

Director: Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris
Starring: Steve Carroll, Toni Colette,
Greg Kinnear, Alan Arkin
USA, 2006, 1 hour 40 minutes

This darkly, funny comedy is at once a skewering of the American Dream, and a bittersweet, surprisingly touching ode to the modern family. A seriously dysfunctional family - harried Mom, ambitious Dad, suicidal, gay Uncle, heroin-snorting Granddad - pack into a VW van determined to get their dumpy little girl to the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant. A sparkling little gem of a film that rejoices in great work from the entire cast.

Winner of 2 BAFTAs, nominated for 4 Oscars including Best Picture
