After preteen Olive (Abigail Breslin) finds out she’s qualified for the Little Miss Sunshine beauty pageant, the rest of her family—harried mother Sheryl (Toni Collette); aspiring motivational speaker father Richard (Greg Kinnear); brother Dwayne (Paul Dano), who’s taken a vow of silence; Sheryl’s brother, Frank (Steve Carell), who recently survived a suicide attempt; and Richard’s father, Edwin (Alan Arkin, who won a best-supporting-actor Oscar for his performance), set out in a Volkswagen microbus together to get Olive to the contest, running into metaphorical roadblocks along the way.

Plot Synopsis: "Bunheads tells the fish-out-of-water story of Michelle Simms, a once-promising classically trained professional dancer who was drawn to the lights of Las Vegas, where she became a showgirl. After she impulsively marries her persistent suitor, she moves to his sleepy California coastal town, where he lives with his mother, Fanny, herself a former dancer. Fanny now runs a local dance studio. Michelle ends up bonding with some of Fanny's students after meeting them. Among the students are sweet Boo, who struggles with her body type; rebellious Sasha, who has the talent to be a ballet dancer but doesn't have her heart in it because of family issues; shapely Ginny, who's not comfortable in her own skin; and fun-loving Melanie, ready for whatever life throws at her. The students benefit from Michelle's knowledge, but she also benefits from them as they help her adapt to small-town life."
