Story


From writer/director Laurie Collyer (Sherrybaby), comes an intimate and intense love story about a young couple at odds with the American dream. Set in the underbelly of usually sunny Florida, Melissa Winters (two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts) works as a cashier at the local convenience store, SUNLIGHT JR. She lives in a seedy motel with her boyfriend Richie (Academy Award nominee Matt Dillon), a former TV repairman who lives month-to-month on his government disability check, spending most of it at a neighborhood tavern. When an unexpected pregnancy takes their lives in a new direction, they are forced to examine the realities of both of their lives, and to face tough choices about what lies on the horizon.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..writer/director Laurie Collyer ("Sherrybaby") has a keen eye for details: the nagging, insipid door chime whenever someone enters or exits Sunlight Jr...”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]
“..the realism is honorable, the acting is exemplary, and all do good work, but life among the unlucky and disenfranchised who exist without hope is not a subject that will put a glow in your heart or a smile on your face..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..Sunlight Jr. is what is often described as a slice-of-life drama, but this one is more of a tiny sliver, and it doesn't leave you with much to chew on..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
