Little Miss Sunshine

I had trouble getting into this the first time I tried, on a transatlantic flight last year. This time I found it much more engrossing though I could see V's attention wandering. It's essentially a feel-good take on a set of feel-bad situations.

It's well enough scripted but falls short of the quality of Sideways, and some will be left feeling cheated of real pain, as the film's satirical bite is consistently playful rather than penetrative.
