Most of us have childhood memories of cramming into a van with the family and embarking on a long journey that was sure to test everyone' sanity. And we can all relate to the typical road trip pitfalls: car trouble, angry outbursts and getting pulled over by the Fuzz.
So the road dramedy Little Miss Sunshine will probably bring back memories, especially if your grandpa sniffed heroin, your dad was a struggling motivational speaker, your gay suicidal uncle was the foremost Proust scholar in the country and your brother was a Nietzsche-obsessed teenager who hadn't spoken in three months. Sound like an ensemble that' too quirky for its own good? Maybe so, but it' almost impossible not to fall for Sunshine' abnormal yet ultimately wholesome charms.
