LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE

Dir. Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris (USA, 2006) 101 mins

Olive Hoover, a seven year old girl, has one goal: to win a beauty pageant. Her heroin-addicted grandfather is her coach, and when she becomes a finalist in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant, her whole family takes on the road in an old run-down VW. The trip is anything but smooth; her father Richard is struggling to promote his self-help program, with no success, mother Sheryl is trying to simply keep her family happy and together, her brother Dwayne refuses to speak and wants to join the Air Force academy, and her uncle Frank must come with them after attempting suicide when he fell in love with one of his male graduate students.
