Sunshine Cleaning (2008)

This is almost a textbook perfect case of screenwriting when you pull back a bit. Two sisters try to clean up their lives as they start a business cleaning up what others prefer not to clean up.

With their lives moving steadily downhill and gaining speed, two sisters in their late twenties decide to make some quick cash cleaning crime scenes and death sites. Their adventures lead them into a more introspective view of the mess left in their own lives caused by an absent mother and a coping father.

While the subject is often morbid and there are some very somber moments, the humanity of the characters shines through - much like the similarly named Little Miss Sunshine - and we love them all the more.
