Little Miss Sunshine

(USA, 2006, 99 minutes)

A sorely dysfunctional family agrees to drive their 7-year old daughter all the way down from Albuquerque to Los Angeles in a battered VW bus so she can attend a beauty pageant. Quirky but warm-hearted ensemble comedy whose attentive and apparently dispassionate look at modern America hides a feel-good, optimistic core.
