Sunshine Cleaning was shot in Alburquerque, New Mexico.
Sunshine Cleaning is a light, entertaining film, perfect for a cool, spring day.
Directed by Christine Jeffs, it moved along adequately.
Amy Adams as Rose Lorkewski, and Emily Blunt as her sister Norah, look so alike the casting was perfect. They learn that working on a joint project brings them closer together, and in the process, helps each become more mature. Alan Arkin as their father, gives Rose the support she needs, and shows his confidence in Rose and her dream. Meanwhile, Norah takes the step she needs to step out of the nest, into the big, wide world. Jason Spevack (12) plays the part of Rose's troubled son believably.
I wouldn't call this film a "must see", but it is pleasant.
