Sunshine Cleaning

The first trailer for Sunshine Cleaning, which stars Amy Adams as a single mom who starts up an unusual business with her sister, played by Emily Blunt, has hit the web this afternoon. From the looks of it, it doesn’t appear to be an officially released trailer from Overture Films, the studio who picked it up at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, but more likely the trailer made by Hanway Films prior to the Fest. Either way, it is one trailer worth watching.

In fact, Sunshine Cleaning is definitely a film worth keeping an eye on, even though it seems to have fallen off the map since I reviewed it at Sundance. It appears that it is still working its way through the festival circuit, playing in early September at the Deauville American Film Festival in France. The film might be another one of those ‘tough sell’ flicks, akin to The Wackness, Towelhead, or Choke, as it follows the story of two sisters who clean up crime scenes in which someone has died in a messy way, but it is a film that packs a ton of heart and a ton of dark humor. See for yourself in the trailer below.
