Weekend Poll: Which Quirky Independent Movie Should Be Adapted Into a Musical?

Weekend Poll: Which Quirky Independent Movie Should Be Adapted Into a Musical?
What lovingly wacky and weird independent movie would make a great musical?

When Little Miss Sunshine was released in the summer of 2006, moviegoers and critics fell in love with it, and for good reason! The heartfelt and hilarious story of Olive, a pudgy, bespectacled seven-year-old, who wants to take home the coveted Little Miss Sunshine crown at an upcoming beauty pageant, and convinces her dysfunctional family to set out on a road trip was the perfect offbeat escape during the summer doldrums. It's also no wonder why James Lapine and William Finn decided to adapt the off-the-wall film into an even more far-out musical! Come to think of it, Little Miss Sunshine isn't the only wacky independent film with ripe material for a fun, flamboyant and catchy tuner. The debate dance in Napoleon Dynamite, the Japanese karaoke club in Lost in Translation and the "infinite" ride through the tunnel in The Perks of Being a Wallflower—our hearts are doing a little dance! We want to know: Which quirky indie film would make a great musical? Vote below!
