52 Movies in 52 Weeks: Week 21: Sunshine Cleaning
This is a film that I know Tony had been waiting eagerly to see for MONTHS. Mostly due to his tremendous and public crush on Amy Adams. Notwithstanding, we had a guys’ weekend out several weeks ago and saw this one at the Broadway. Good choice.
Story follows Amy Adams as a housekeeper/cleaner who manages to get into the business of cleaning up crime scenes/death scenes for its substantial earnings potential. Hey, who wants to clean blood and whatever else may be involved after a suicide, death of any other kind, etc.
She starts a business with her sister, Alan Arkin plays their father. The story is really about the relationship between her and her sister, and the two and their father, and her and her child. Great story, lots of humor while still not being a comedy. The theme may not appeal to many, but one of my favorites this year. My rating: A.
