Sunshine Cleaning

This film starring Amy Adams and Emily Blunt has a freshness to it. It takes simple concepts often explored in other films and gives a little bit of a twist on it. It is not often you come across a movie about people who clean up after murders and suicides. Amy Adams does an exceptional job at playing the girl who had it all back in high school but is now living a life she would have never hoped to live. She is dissatisfied with herself and ultimately ashamed. Emily Blunt also does great playing her younger sister who is also ultimately unhappy. The movie is good but not great. Despite its original premise there really is not much about the movie that is original at all. It has predictable plot turns and eventually adds up to exactly what you would expect it to. The performances and witty script still touched me and was an enjoyable experience.

3 out of 5 Stars
