About Little Miss Sunshine
Greg Kinnear stars as the success-obsessed head of a wonderfully dysfunctional family, taking a road trip to California to enter seven-year-old daughter Olive (Abigail Breslin) in a junior beauty pageant. A flop as a professional speaker and barely talking to his wife (Toni Collette), he wholeheartedly embraces his somewhat ordinary offspring's big dream to win the Little Miss Sunshine title. If only the Hoovers could get through just one day without broken-down VW vans, suicidal uncles and dead bodies. But as disasters continue to befall them, the family finally learn to trust, appreciate and support each other. Aaaah. A charming indie comedy drama that, true to the title, radiates warmth and will leave you with a feel-good glow.
