For me personally, I feel that America’s reputation lies completely with its Road Movies. A rite of passage some may even say, you’ve got Badlands, Thelma and Louise and On The Road but none of these feature a family consisting of a budding beauty queen, a voluntary mute, a motivational speaker and an uncle just out of hospital for a suicide attempt. Mix in a foul mouthed grandpa and a mum who is quite clearly at the end of her…
(I know, I know, but this caught me by surprise & still holds up)
Retroactively a caricature of its own genre, successful still
Such a shameless crowd-pleaser that giving it 5 stars feels a little like connivance — but it's also so good that I don't even care.
WHY DOES NO-ONE APPRECIATE HOW GOOD PAUL DANO IS?!
Every film ive seen him (Prisoners, There Will Be Blood, 12 Years A Slave, Ruby Sparks and this)
He is fantastic in this film, a great portrayal of privellege but an emotionally troubled youth.
Its soo hard to find a great child performance but Abigail Breslin gives one, you never beleive for one second that she isnt her character.
Alan Arkin really brings experience to the table and wins a desevering…
"Oh my God, I'm getting pulled over. Everyone, just... pretend to be normal."
I have no time to live
When my balance flies away
I have no time to live

Drawing back after being
Unable to find your track

Little Miss Sunshine is one of those small films that for me just gets better with every viewing, focusing on a family that is as dysfunctional as it gets, with a mother doing her best to keep everything as normal as possible, a father who is a very judgemental motivational speaker, though a failed one at that so maybe he’s bravado of judgement and ‘winners and losers’ categorising of people is to motivate himself, a brother who vows not to…
First time watching this little gem since it first came out 9 years ago (9 really?!?). Honestly forgot how much I enjoyed this film!!!
Un pequeño viaje, que por caprichos del destino, los embarca en experiencias profundas, que los lleva al absoluto conocimiento propio y de los suyos. Sumamente conmovedora. ¡Al diablo lo que puedan pensar los demás! ¡al diablo sus pobres opiniones sobre la vida! Sí se sabe vivir, desde la personalidad. ¡A brincar y gritar sin razón alguna! Esta es la hora para vivir, para hacer de un simple momento, algo inolvidable. Si que se sabe condimentar la vida.
Jam-packed with laughs and memorable moments from start to finish.
