Sunlight Jr. (2013)
Critic Consensus: It doesn't offer much in the way of uplift, but Sunlight Jr.'s grim storyline is offset by Laurie Collyer's empathetic screenplay and strong performances from Naomi Watts and Matt Dillon.

Critic Reviews for Sunlight Jr.
If Sunlight Jr. does anything, it is to shine a light on the fact that the American dream is dormant notion for far too many.
Urine tests and evictions, drunken brawls and rare outbursts of tenderness and grace. Collyer takes it all in, with a clear eye and no judgment.
Collyer paints a sobering and important picture of the way many of us live now.
Despite the intensity of their performances, Ms. Watts and Mr. Dillon are only fleetingly convincing as these desperate young Americans trying to maintain a foothold.
Collyer never looks down on her characters; instead, her films have the quality of a good Springsteen song.
Audience Reviews for Sunlight Jr.
Despite the uplifting title, Sunlight Jr. Is a dull drama heading towards a very unhappy ending. Naomi Watts gave a good performance but the mediocre script and lousy story made it all hard to enjoy.
Sunlight Jr. was good. Watts and Dillon were outstanding. I liked the whole idea that movie centers around the store.
this movie just proves a point that u can watch naomi watts in nearly anything but NOT LITERALLY anything. yuck yuck yucky movie. blah.
