About Little Miss Sunshine

What do you get when you cross child beauty pageant veterans with a yellow combi-van and a first time husband-wife director-duo? Little Miss Sunshine of course!

This hilarious road trip film sees a comically dysfunctional and emotionally bankrupt family help their youngest member to dispute the title every seven-year-old wants: Little Miss Sunshine.

The long drive to the California based pageant leaves much time for trouble and there is sure to be plenty as Olive and her mum are joined by a suicidal proust expert, an unsuccessful self-help author, a silent Nietzsche-crazed teenager and a retirement home expellee!

Trivia bite: The lead actress Abigail Breslin (Olive) really is listening to loud music through her headphones in the film because the director didn’t want her hearing the curse words!

*Early Bird pricing: General Admission – $13 | Members $10. Ends 5 Oct 18
