Brighten Up Your Day with Sunshine Cleaning

If you didn't see Sunshine Cleaning this past weekend, you're missing out.

From the producers of Little Miss Sunshine (yes, they both have "sunshine" in the title"), the movie centers on Rose Lorkowski (Amy Adams), a former high school cheerleading captain, who is now a single mom working as a house cleaner.

In order to get her son into a better school, Rose convinces her sister (Emily Blunt) to work with her as part of a crime scene cleanup crew. Alan Arkin also stars in the movie as the girls' loving father who constantly tries his hand at get rich quick schemes, but never is able to succeed.

Yes, the crime scene cleanup sounds morbid, but bloody bath tubs aside, the movie is actually really sweet. All in all, Sunshine Cleaning is a quirky movie about a loving family who just needs to start over.

Be sure to check out the movie and watch the trailer here. -- Jacki Garfinkel
