Little Miss Sunshine

Speaking of movies, I just have to rave about Little Miss Sunshine, which will be playing thru the 19th of October in Belfast, Maine. Yes, it's rated R, because it deals with some adult (and serious) themes, but if you have a dark sense of humor about dysfunctional families, you'll laugh very hard. Alan Arkin would have stolen the show from a lesser ensemble. Despite the dark humor, it does redeem itself in the end with many moments of sweetness. I haven't spoken with anyone who hasn't liked it so far.

If you're easily offended, don't go. If you're going thru, or have recently gone through, a major family grief event, it might touch on a few raw nerves. Otherwise, gang ho!
