delightful drama movie directed by Christine Jeffs stars Amy Adams as
Rose Lorkowski and focuses around not only her expectations for life but
also her family which although sometimes drag her down, they are the
mortar of her foundation.
Unfortunately for Rose, she believed she was destined for something
bigger after high school, especially considering that she was the lead
cheerleaders but of course, density had other plans and he was called
Mac (Steve Zahn), the man, now a police officer who got her pregnant in
high school. Although he admits the child is his, he is now married to
another girl from high school with children of their own.
also strings Rose along for sex with Rose hoping that he will leave his
wife, marry her and ensure that their child has and knows who his father
is. Of course this does not happen and after her cleaning job goes
astray, Mac gives her the idea of starting a biohazard removal crime
scene business which is where the drama, comedy comes into play. The
first time Rose encounters a crime scene is quite cute as blood as
innocent girls don't really mix.
Recruiting her lost soul of a sister Norah Lorkowski (Emily Blunt), they
start to bring in the money and just when she thinks her life is about
to turn for the best, the conflict begins which although is clichéd, it
actually makes this delightful movie even more endearing as you watch
impendent film is easily one of the best releases of 2009 and features
some stunning performances by all involved, especially by Adams and
Blunt whose relationship in the movie is quite believable. The
characters are all quite quirky, especially their father Joe (Alan Arkin)
who is always trying to make easy money. At the end of the day, this is
almost like a Greek tragedy but fortunately director Christine Jeffs
manages to make Sunshine Cleaning a very memorable movie experience.
