LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
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.
