Kenny and Mike continue a series looking at Christ Figures in Film with the 2006 Film Little Miss Sunshine. The film won 2 Oscars, Alan Arkin for supporting actor and Michael Arndt for Screenplay. Ten-year-old Abigail Breslin also received a Supporting Actress nomination for her portrayal of Olive. 

Faith Spotted:

The ten-year-old daughter in a very dysfunctional family, Olive (Peace Bringer) serves as the Christ figure as she is the source of reconciliation for the family members.  While in great conflict with one another and angry at life and the hurdles life presents, the pure, and innocent love Olive has for life and others inspires the family members to work together for her behalf.
