Attention: movie spoiler below! Go watch it first, then read on:
We watched “Little Miss Sunshine” on DVD last night. What a twisted movie, one of those alienation-in-the-modern-world films I like so much. It has a very ironic ending, a parody of child beauty pageants and how they sexualize little girls. Although the main theme of the movie was about a family overcoming their emotional separation from each other during a Great American Road Trip. Sort of like “Family Vacation” meets something more serious. I’m sure I’ll think of a suitable comparison later.
