Sunshine Cleaning

In order to raise the tuition to send her young son to private school, a mom starts an unusual business — a biohazard removal/crime scene clean-up service — with her unreliable sister. (IMDb)

I really liked this one. The story itself was really interesting, with the whole crime scene clean up thing. However, what really drove this were the characters. They were real people, which is something I don’t see all the time. They were real, flawed human beings, which is infinitely more interesting to watch than textbook, likable people. This is helped along by the acting, specifically by Amy Adams and Emily Blunt. They were fantastic. I loved the two of them together, as well as them with Alan Arkin, who played their dad. My only tiny complaint is that the resolution feels a tiny bit rushed. It works, but I wanted a little bit more. Overall though, this was a really good movie that deserved more attention than it received.

7.5/10
