Meet the Lorkowski family...

Rose (Amy Adams) is a beautiful woman, who fears that the best years of her life were at high school many years ago, discovers that there's money to be made by cleaning up after death. A new business is formed and with it a chance for self-respect.

Norah (Emily Blunt), Rose's carefree younger sister, who tags along for the ride, faces unexpected challenges and is deeply moved by the experience. How will this 21-year-old slacker respond to responsibility?

Oscar (Jason Spevack), Rose's son, is an 8-year-old drop-out, struggling at school. He needs his mother to succeed almost as much as he needs the latest binoculars from the mall.

Joe (Alan Arkin), Rose's dad, is a dreamer looking to the next pie-eyed scheme to escape from the dreadful here and now. For all the pain he's caused his family, Joe is still prepared to make the sacrifices needed to keep his daughter's dream alive.

This is the team behind Sunshine Cleaning...

A poignant and bitter-sweet family film, about respect, love and clearing up body parts.

Theatrical report

Sunshine Cleaning shows us how much it sucks to be poor. In the USA. And even though it has nothing to do with Little Miss Sunshine other than a title, a dysfunctional family, a van, dead people and Alan Arkin, it's a lovely coming together of the concept of how much life sucks. And then you try to get ahead...

The drama movie Sunshine Cleaning is directed by Christine Jeffs and stars Amy Adams, Emily Blunt, Alan Arkin.
