Trailer Watch: Sunshine Cleaning and The Pleasure of Being Robbed

Amy Adams (Enchanted) and Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada) co-star in Sunshine Cleaning, a macabre indie “dramedy” about two sisters who start a “crime scene cleaning and bio-hazard removal business.”

The film was picked up by Overture at this year’s Sundance, and it’s slated for release sometime next year (I can’t find anything more specific than that). Reviews have been mostly, if not enthusiastically positive, and the Z-budget production values are a turn-off for me, but the story looks less cutesy than all the comparisons to Little Miss Sunshine (due to the title and a supporting role with Alan Arkin) would lead me to expect.

Apple has just added the trailer for Josh Safdie’s acclaimed indie drama, The Pleasure of Being Robbed, which centers on “a young woman whose compulsive curiosity leads to bold, elaborate acts of theft.” The trailer doesn’t give away much, but it has a nice song in it. Out now at New York’s IFC Center, the movie will hit IFC Films On Demand on October 22. IFC usually sends film to On Demand the same day they hit video stores,
