Show preview

(2006) Directed by Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris. When 7-year-old Olive Hoover (Abigail Breslin) learns that she's qualified for the Little Miss Sunshine contest the entire family sets off in their VW camper van for the trip from Albuquerque to California. The family includes her reasonably sane mother Sheryl (Toni Collette); her father Richard (Greg Kinnear), a motivational speaker who is stressing over whether his book will be published; her brother Dwayne (Paul Dano) who is into Nietzsche and has taken a vow of silence and hasn't said a word in 9 months; her grandpa Edwin Hoover (Alan Arkin) who likes to cuss; and her uncle Frank Ginsburg (Steve Carell) - Sheryl's brother - who recently tried to commit suicide. Along the way, the van breaks down, Richard learns his book won't be published and they forget Olive at a gas station. They face grief along the way but they get Olive to the pageant on time - even if the pageant itself doesn't quite go as planned. [Comedy, Drama]
