Little Miss Sunshine is a wonderful heartfelt movie because it lets the actors play their game, without plot devices, movie magic or a emotionally simulating soundtrack. It works because, the casting is pitch perfect, the directing is automated and the situation seems real. The movie is about dreams, pursuing, the journey, the destination and realisation. It is a satirical comedy without the actors ever trying to be funny. In fact it is one of those rare movies where the whole family can sit in a van on a highway and along with the induced silence, the movie still moves along. It’s a movie that makes you think further on about everything and at the same time, it lifts you somehow. Perhaps you don’t know it, but you will feel it. It is one of those experiences that you have to endure yourself…
Neo rates it 8.5/10.
