Little Miss Sunshine

Kristen and I watched Little Miss Sunshine on DVD Saturday night. It is a quirky look at an offbeat family on a road trip. To its credit, the film sidesteps the typical Hollywood whitewash and remains brutally honest in examining the small and large setbacks we all face in our lives.

Greg Kinnear and Toni Collette are as good as ever, but Alan Arkin steals the show as the coke-sniffing grandpa. You can tell he relishes such a good role in the twilight of his career.

If you want something a little different but still rewarding, give Little Miss Sunshine a spin.
