Sunshine Cleaning

This 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.

Mac 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 Rose blossom.

This 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.
