Michael Arndt - Themes of "Little Miss Sunshine"

Complete video at: Screenwriter Michael Arndt talks about the major themes present in his Academy Award-winning script for the film "Little Miss Sunshine." ----- In 2000, screenwriter Michael Arndt had no credits, no agents, no publishing history when he took a year off to write "a saleable script" that got him an agent and a deal and, five years after that, one of the big hits of 2006. A new book, "Little Miss Sunshine: The Shooting Script," details the fascinating behind-the-scenes story of the indie runaway hit with an introduction, afterword, and enlightening scene notes from Arndt. Starring Greg Kinnear, Toni Collette, Steve Carell, Abigail Breslin, Paul Dano, and Alan Arkin, the film strikes a nerve with everyone who's ever been awestruck by how their muddled families seem to make it after all. Michael Arndt offers a rare insider's look and considered thoughts on one of the film's most prevalent themes, success vs. failure. -- Cody's Books
