Trailer Blazer: 'Sunshine Cleaning'

Posted on

Sunshine Cleaning earned praise earlier this year at Sundance, including on this site from Owen Gleiberman and Whitney Pastorek, but Fox Searchlight turned down the chance to buy it, perhaps because it was just too similar to the distributor’s Little Miss Sunshine — quirky family comedy, Southwestern setting, Alan Arkin as a blunt-talking father figure, that word in the title. Fortunately, British indie HanWay has picked it up, though it doesn’t appear to have a release date yet. Still, you can watch the engaging trailer, featuring Amy Adams and Emily Blunt as sisters (genius casting already) who start their own crime-scene cleanup business. I’ll watch Adams in anything, but it’s nice to see her play flawed and frazzled for a change after princess-y roles in Enchanted and Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day. Check out the clip below. (Warning: Some NSFW language.)
