Abigail Breslin is a little star as a would-be beauty queen
Abigail Breslin is a little star as a would-be beauty queen.
The Oscar-winning script of this hilarious, bittersweet comedy sees Breslin’s dysfunctional family heading off to the West Coast in a clapped-out camper van to fulfil her ambition to appear in a kids' beauty pageant.
Alan Arkin won a deserved Oscar and gives a brilliantly exuberant turn as her hippyish, sex-obsessed granddad, Toni Collette and Greg Kinnear are excellent as mum and failed self-help guru dad, Steve Carell is Breslin’s suicidal uncle and Paul Dano her brother who refuses to speak.
A special, laugh-out-loud treat.
