Great movie. This one was a happy surprise, because even if the film hits a few clichéd notes, it's still quite a unique, heartfelt, funny and also sad story that includes excellent performances from its cast, especially Adams, Blunt and Arkin.
Despite a plot that tries to be serious and yet moves along without a care of its crazy implausibility, Sunshine Cleaning allows viewers a rare chance to see Adams and Blunt in sillier roles. Blunt in particular is fun.
A simple story about family. A simple story of two sisters living, or trying to, in the wide world around them. And you know what, that's what makes the film work. The power of the main actresses and the simple yet compelling life stories of two people and the trails they face with having a career and the turmoil of life. An example of a simple story told more than well, it's exceptionally well.
"Sunshine Cleaning's" shoe-string budget and minimalist style might hamper some of its intensity, but this modest effort from Christine Jeffs ultimately pleases the audience with organic emotion and a quirky sense of jocularity.
I liked this movie a lot, that could be biased of me to say because I love Emily Blunt and Amy Adams as actresses, but they really shine in this movie. Good character developement, good morals. See it.
A pretty good lighthearted drama movie i must say with a very simple and enjoyable story. Its from the same producer that made "Little Miss Sunshine" and its a similar feeling into it aswell but i liked this movie much more. In the main role we have the talent and very cute actress , Amy Adams. The story follows 2 sisters trying to earn more money by cleaning up crime scenes etc.. a story which is enjoyable and easy to understand which is always positive. I can easily recommend this flick and its probably among the top 10 dramas for this year so far.
