Amy Adams + Emily Blunt = WIN

Amy Adams and Emily Blunt are 2 of my favorite actors, yet I've never heard of this film..hmm. I had to watch it. I didn't know what to expect, for I saw no trailer or knew anything about it. After watching the film, I'd consider the movie, a "dramedy".
The two fine actresses are sisters struggling with everyday life and not being 'wealthy'. Amy Adams' character has a son and has feeling... read more

Quem gostou de “Little Miss Sunshine “(2006) não vai se decepcionar com “Sunshine Cleaning”(2008). Nomeado ao grande prêmio do Júri ano passado em Sundance, o longa é anunciado por ter os mesmos produtores e as semelhanças vão além do título.

A duologia Sunshine tem o mesmo ator, Alan Arkin, fazendo o mesmo papel do avô complacente e encorajador da criança peculia... read more

This movie provided a delightful insight into the world of crime scene cleanup. Rose is a single mom who is struggling to make ends meets and decides to start her own business which specializes in crime scene cleanup. Although she has no experience and a flighty sister for an assistance they try and act the part when it comes to business. They make some hilarious goofs throughout the movie but in ... read more

" First Viewing Viewing Date: March 5th Via: Stan. Plot: In order to raise the tuition to send her young son to private school, a single mother starts an unusual business - a biohazard removal/crime scene clean-up service - with her unreliable sister. Rating: 7.1/10 Why Did I Watch It? This was a random watchlist pick due to its short runtime, cast and good ratings. It was also one of the first movies I added to my Stan. watchlist in 2015, so it seemed like it was time to scratch it off."

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- September 2016 (23 movies items)

" DVD- 1hr. 31min. First Viewing While it does fall into the all too common indie tradition of quirky preciousness, Sunshine Cleaning, luckily, is built on stronger foundation. The emotions don't feel particularly manufactured, though they do at times, and the cast is superb (Adams and Blunt, especially). An above-average Sundance flick.
