Gigantic (2008)

Happy's father at the mattress store

Father & son enjoying the family tradition of mushrooms in the woods! 

We saw this film the other day & had to share it with you. A great indie romance film by nature of it's story and performances by John Goodman (Al Lolly - Happy's father), Zooey Deschanel (Happy), and Paul Dano ( Brian - 'Little Miss Sunshine')

  Brian is a maudlin mattress salesman lost in a conveyer belt lifestyle. But, with a twist... He's looking out for one all important call;  to let him know his baby is ready for adoption! Having always yearned for a chinese baby, he still has great difficulty aquiring one - patiently he waits.

  Meanwhile - amongst a peppering of attacks from a crazed homeless man - he recieves a visit from a bolshy Al Lolly, who orders the most expensive bed in the store! 

  When 'Happy' comes to pay for her fathers bed the next day life finally changes for them both. Swept up into a love affair their colourful characters spark into fireworks of delight and dillema.

We found this one really quite unique in lot's of ways. Definitely one you'll remember!
