This grand King Vidor soap opera, boasting a brilliant performance from Barbara Stanwyck, has been known to turn the hardest of hearts into mush. Stanwyck stars as a tough cookie who marries above her station, and finds the class differences between herself, her husband's family and, ultimately, her daughter, impossible to surmount. If that ending doesn't leave you in a puddle, check your pulse: You might be dead. (TV Guide)
Update: MGM sent us the wrong 35mm print, so we unfortunately have to screen this movie on DVD.
Directed by Christine Jeffs. US. 2008. R. 91 min.

"On the surface, "Sunshine Cleaning," about a small-time crime scene cleanup crew in a crumbling corner of Albuquerque, is an offbeat and oddly endearing drama, leavened with just the right amount of comedy to even things out. But dig in a bit deeper, and you uncover a smartly done morality tale that couldn't be more in sync with these troubled times." More»
