GENRE: Romantic Comedy
CAST: Parker Posey (Superman Returns, You’ve Got Mail)
SYNOPSIS: A married couple, Millie and Al, are dealing with a struggling chicken farm business and a struggling marriage. Fortunately, they may have a savior—reality television!
After a chance meeting with a television producer named Ira, Millie agrees to have her life featured in the reality show, “Cut the Crap,” hosted by everyone’s favorite hippie/yogi—Angela Lovecraft (Parker Posey). Angela is the ultimate free-spirit--living in the moment with only the slightest grasp of reality.
Al hates the idea of being filmed and refuses to participate, creating more friction in her relationship with Mille. He spends most of his time on his fishing boat.
In the first few days of shooting, Ira realizes that Millie is, how shall I say this…boring! He decides to spice things up by following Al, who is having lunch with a mysterious woman. Ira tells Millie that Al might be doing more than just fishing on his boat, even though he isn’t, just to create more drama.
Just when it seems Millie and Al might be headed for a divorce, Angela uses her New Age powers to remind the couple exactly why they love each other, and that using love, they can survive any obstacle in their way. Angela learns that it’s sometimes fun having your feet on the ground, instead of always having your head in the clouds.
“Sunny Side Up” is a charming, funny tale about life, love and chickens.
