A modern classic, the riotously funny, effortlessly touching Little Miss Sunshine benefits from a superb ensemble cast who play sensitively off one another to portray the dysfunctional Hoover family. Dad Richard (Greg Kinnear) is trying to sell his motivational success programme while his wife (Toni Collette) offers support. Meanwhile Uncle Frank (Steve Carell) is in need of care after a crisis; teenager Dwayne (Paul Dano) has fallen silent and foul-mouthed grandfather Edwin (Alan Arkin) has been turfed out of his retirement home. Together, they head to California to support determined little Olive (Abigail Breslin) in her bid to win a beauty queen contest: a trip that stretches everyone’s sanity to the limit.
