It Takes Two

Losers are people who are so afraid of not winning, they don’t even try. –Grandpa, Little Miss Sunshine

Morning, rays of sunshine! No two film festival favorites capture the mantra above quite like Little Miss Sunshine and Billy Elliot. Like a number of indie motion pictures, this cinematic duo requires their viewers to blow out nearly a dozen and a half birthday candles prior to watching (…if you get my drift. Ages 17+). If you pass that requirement, terrific! Watch away… Haha.

Little Miss Sunshine captured my heart several years ago with its undeniable sincerity and inspiring determination. For one reason or another, I hope it captures your heart too.

Despite all of the social and socio-economic adversity against him, Billy Elliot follows his dreams of becoming a ballet dancer, making this film simply heart-warming. Now, I must warn you, this movie is definitely a tear-jerker towards the end but definitely worthwhile. I guarantee it.

So, the question is: What’s your favorite indie film(s)?

Happy, happy Saturday!

Be you (= amazing),

Dani
