LIT­TLE MISS SUN­SHINE

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

SBS ONE, 8.30PM ★★ ★ ★

You might know the set- up in­side- out: a com­i­cally dys­func­tional fam­ily shoe­horns it­self into cramped ve­hi­cle for a road trip to des­ti­na­tion Dis­cov­er­ing Your­self. But you won’t have seen it done in such a lively and en­ter­tain­ing fash­ion. Once this un­ruly mob ar­rives at a hideous pre- teen beauty pageant, the slow- burn­ing mix of light com­edy and poignant so­cial drama ig­nites spec­tac­u­larly. The most un­likely feel- good movie of 2006. Stars Toni Col­lette, Greg Kin­n­ear and Abi­gail Bres­lin.

Dys­func­tional: Toni Col­lette, Paul Dano and Greg Kin­n­ear star in Lit­tle Miss Sun­shine.
