Nomad Cinema Outdoor Screening: Little Miss Sunshine
Grab a little bit of sunshine with this outdoor screening
How many ways are there to see a movie? Well, when you add movie magicians The Nomad Cinema into the conversation, the possibilities are endless. Nomad Cinema have no fixed home: they journey from venue to venue, always finding fresh pastures to screen cult classics and old favourites. For this one, get ready for Little Miss Sunshine. This 2006 American indie grew from a well-regarded Sundance Film Festival hit into a rapturously adored Oscar underdog, winning gongs for Alan Arkin and screenwriter Michael Arndt. A pre-teen wannabe beauty queen piles into a creaky old camper van with her arguing parents, suicidal uncle, batty grandpa and emo older brother for a cross-country road trip towards the mother of all beauty pageants. Pathos, wicked jokes and an ultimately uplifting experience come courtesy of an unbeatable comedy cast, whose climactic performance to Rick James’ "Super Freak" is unforgettable. Oh, and the rest of the soundtrack’s a stonker as well. "Sharp, very funny, surprisingly moving…this sparkling little gem takes the family road movie to unhoped-for heights of hilarity and humanity." – Empire "Tucked in between all the hurt and the jokes, the character development and the across-the-board terrific performances is a surprisingly sharp look at contemporary America." – New York Times Certificate: 15. Valid ID required. Runtime: 1 hour 41 minutes.
"A sweet, tart and smart satire."
