See “Sunshine Cleaning”
Single mom Rose (Amy Adams) and her slacker sister Norah (Emily Blunt) open an unlikely business: crime scene cleanup. As they scrub and sanitize (don’t worry, you won’t see any dead bodies), they learn to love each other for the messes they are. (In theaters in limited release on March 13.)
