little miss sunshine

miss c asked me to sit and watch little miss sunshine with her, and i'm glad i did. for once, there's a dysfunctional familiy on the screen, not all scrubbed and sugary. dad's a motivational speaker, who's not getting anywhere; mum's trying to keep it all together; grandpa has a drug habit; son hasn't utter a word for nearly a year; uncle has just tried to commit suicide and little olive just takes it all on board.
i cringe with every disaster they encounter, and wonder if uncle realises that he really couldn't justify attempting suicide as he watches his sister's family.
surprisingly refreshing. i will say no more.
