Sunshine Cleaning

What a low-key, delightful film.  It features Emily Blunt and Amy Adams as two fairly flawed and financially struggling sisters who decide to go into business for themselves by starting a biohazard cleaning company.  Both actresses do a great job portraying their characters and the supporting actors, including the always enjoyable Adam Arkin as the father, all play their roles in a subdued and believable fashion.  The movie is about family, discovering what is important in life, accepting imperfection, moving forward  and dealing with loss – of dreams, of loved ones, of what “should have” been.  I really have nothing bad to say about this movie other than I watched it right after “Avatar” and that probably wasn’t the best move given that “Avatar” is about a 10.5 on the action scale and “Sunshine Cleaning” is about a 2.5.  This may have skewed my perspective (and the below rating) just a bit.

Rating: 3.25 out of 4 Pig Toes.
