Happy Go Lucky – DVD Review


Poppy is a life loving, irrepressibly cheerful, Pollyanna-type primary school teacher who is thirty years old, single, and infinitely optimistic and accepting. Her ability to maintain such a perspective is repeatedly tested; by a repressed driving instructor with anger problems, a row with her pregnant sister, and a love-affair with a social worker…


“A Mike Leigh movie with a cast of people you probably won’t recognize; Sally Hawkins is the only face you’ll know. It’s about a woman who can only see the bright side of everything and someone called me and said this is the story of your life isn’t it and maybe it’s the reason I liked it; but it’s a fun movie to see and it’ll cheer the hell out of you.”
