Little Miss Sunshine
In cinemas: Wednesday, 26 July 2006
When their young daughter Olive is selected as a finalist in the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant (albeit by default), proud parents Richard and Sheryl cram their entire family - airforce-obsessed son Dwayne, porn-loving father and suicidal, gay, Proust scholar brother Frank - into a VW camper van for a cross country road trip to hell and back. The troubles begin within minutes of hitting the road, exacerbated by mechanical problems with the van and Dwayne's refusal to speak. Amidst the bickering, the family learns some painful home truths and discovers an underlying love that will help them survive any ordeal.
