LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE
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 (and effective) feel-good movie of 2006. Stars Toni Collette and Greg Kinnear.
