Happy-Go-Lucky Movie Review

I like depressing movies. I really like depressing movies. So when I saw the preview for Happy-Go-Lucky, a movie about an overly bubbly woman who goes around being – well – bubbly, I balked. The movie looked annoying, stupid and boring.

But, I can be wrong sometimes. It’s a rare occurrence, but I can be wrong. And I was wrong about Happy-Go-Lucky. Sally Hawkins, who was nominated for Best Actress, turns in a star-turning performance, and writer/director Mike Leigh makes that performance possible with an entertaining, surprisingly layered story.

    I found this movie truly hilarious with a quick dialogue I haven’t seen in a film for a long time. Though not all reaction has been so positive. I found an interesting comment here on why some people found Poppy so annoying. It’s here: http://www.pandalous.com/topic/unfortunate_receptions
