Our 2018 Vintage Screening season continues with a March double bill, and Friday’s screening is the indie comedy hit Little Miss Sunshine. Take your seats in Averys cellars, accompanied by a mouth-watering selection of wines picked by Averys resident experts that will perfectly match the movie’s feel-good factor.
Guests enjoy sparkling wine on arrival, with bread and cheese courtesy of Arch House Deli to enjoy during the film, along with four carefully chosen wines (details announced soon).
Please make sure that you have read the guidelines contained in the Important Information tab above before booking your tickets.
The Hoover family embark on a road trip from New Mexico to California so that their daughter Olive can compete in the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant. The eccentric family – including a suicidal uncle and a foul-mouthed grandfather – soon find their personalities clashing as the journey descends into chaos, and reaching the pageant at all is uncertain unless they can work together.

THEY SAY: “ First-time co-directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris deserve the first-ever husband-and-wife joint nomination for Best Director at the time of the Academy Awards. Abigail Breslin, Steve Carell and Alan Arkin also emerge as likely Oscar nominees […] this startling and irresistible dark comedy counts as one of the very best films of the year.” – Michael Medved, 2006
WE SAY: Idiosyncratic, laugh-out-loud funny and full of heart, this brilliant indie gem is a touching portrait of family, dysfunctions and all.
