Little Miss Sunshine Review

Little Miss Sunshine Review

Little Miss Sunshine is this summer’s sleeper hit and if you haven’t seen it yet, you are TOTALLY MISSING OUT.  It was labeled one of the hottest properties at Sundance back in January, opened in select theaters back in July, and the buzz is still flowing. And rightfully so!  It’s 102 minutes of pure hilarity from start to finish. 

The standout (and thoroughly competent) ensemble includes Steve Carell as a suicidal Proust scholar, Greg Kinnear as a wannabe motivational speaker dad, Toni Collette as a working mother trying to hold the family together, Alan Arkin as a foul-mouthed, heroin-snorting grandpa, Paul Dano as a Nietzsche devotee and, last but not least, the adorable Abigail Breslin as daughter Olive, who competes in the Little Miss Sunshine contest.

Although most wouldn’t typically warm up to Little Miss Sunshine because it has "quirky indie" and "dark comedy" written all over, it most certainly delivers. It’s a beautiful comedy that’s so clever and fresh, you’ll thank me later.  Check out Little Miss Sunshine while it’s still out in theaters.  It’ll be worth every penny!

TIDBIT :: Paul Dano is Audrey‘s brother’s friend from Wilton, CT.  Just thought you’d like to know!

Kitson on Robertson Boulevard in Los Angeles now features a Little Miss Sunshine window display.  They will will stock an exclusive Kitson-designed Sunshine t-shirt when it becomes available around September 1st.

best movie of the year so far… the cast is so hiliarious and it will make your own family seem less dysfunctional afterwards so that’s a plus.

Hey Jared, I hear nothing but raves about this movie, cannot wait to see it. I live in Connecticut, not far from Wilton. Tell Paul when he needs an interior decorator(me)to give me a call!

Yeah, this movie is super entertaining! Really I could see it numerous more times and still laugh out loud. Paul Dano is adorable and a real stand-out.Who’s Audrey, btw? Anyway, have her tell Paul how wonderful he is in the film. Thanks. :D

Saw it at The Grove in LA and completely loved it. By far one of the best movies I have seen in years. It’s funny, tragic, and free of ****** movie cliches. I highly recommend it.
