Funny. Real. Touching. I absolutely loved the film Sunshine Cleaning starring Amy Adams, Emily Blunt and Alan Arkin.
After having several behavioral problems in his school, including licking a teacher's leg, Rose (Adams) decides that it is time to take her young son out of his school and place him in private school. But, her salary as a maid just ain't cutting it. So, she heeds the advice of her married lover, and former high school flame, and starts a crime scene cleaning business with her misfit sister, Norah (Blunt), called Sunshine Cleaning.
Adams gives a relatable and real portrayal of womanhood and the journey to finding out who you really are. Sometimes you have to make a few mistakes, or a lot of them, to figure things out. But, with a little stick-to-itness it all works out in the end. And, it usually works out even better with the love and support of our beautifully imperfect families.
The film debuted at last year's Sundance Film Festival and opened in limited release this month.
This is a must-see film for all of you fans of art house movies, like myself.
If you happen to check it out, let me know what you think.
