Little Miss Sunshine
Little Miss Sunshine tells the story of the Hoovers, one of the most endearingly fractured families ever seen on motion picture screens. Together, the motley six-member family treks from Albuquerque to the Little Miss Sunshine pageant in Redondo Beach, California, to fulfill the deepest wish of 7-year-old Olive, an ordinary little girl with big dreams. Along the way the family must deal with crushed dreams, heartbreak, and a broken-down VW bus, leading up to the surreal Little Miss Sunshine competition itself.

Henry Chinaski considers himself a writer, and on occasion writes. Mostly he quests for the booze and women that sidetrack and seduce, rather than inspire greatness. When he falls for Jan, the soulful connection fails to save either from their self-destructive ways, and the relationship totters between earnest connection and reflective loathing. With exceptional performances that capture the intoxicated journey through life and art, "Factotum" is the story of a man living on the edge; a writer who risks everything, tries anything, and finds poetry in life's pleasure and pain. Based on the acclaimed second novel by Charles Bukowski. "Factotum" was published in 1975. The character of Henry Chinaski is widely known to be Bukowski's alter ego. Directed by Bent Hamer
