Trailer for Happy-Go-Lucky

Movie Preview: Happy-Go-Lucky

As far as movies go, the Fall is probably going to get a little depressing. Not like "crap these movies are depressingly bad" - depressing, but more like "these movies are bleak and make me die a little inside" - depressing. That's why I feel like it's practically my duty to bring you the trailer for what will undoubtedly be a little ray of sunshine come this October: Happy-Go-Lucky.

It's a little British film that was written and directed by Mike Leigh, and while I can't seem to locate a plot from watching the trailer, I know this much is true: it lifts my spirits. Even the IMDB description of the movie makes me happy: "Poppy is a thirty-year old Primary School teacher in contemporary North London. She has great friends, a job she loves and a full life." I'm already charmed by Sally Hawkins who plays Poppy and, I dunno, this trailer just gives me the warm fuzzies inside. Which I'm pretty sure is the goal.

To check it out for yourself,

Up until now -seeing this- I wasn't convinced how good it was, but now I'm very excited. I could easily see Sally Hawkins racking up the nominations.

I really liked this movie. It's not groundbreaking or anything, but it's definitely worth a watch as it's a really sweet film.

it's funny - these little 'happy' british movies are all kind of the same. they don't have really clear plots - but you do realize that if you can sit through the whole thing, that it's cute and you've enjoyed yourself. it's hard sometimes since their sense of humor is different from ours - but there could be merit here!

I normally avoid Mike Leigh films like the plague - they are normally so depressing! I may have to break my rule and actually try and see this one.

I'm not a "chick flick" person, but I will take my mother to go see this movie. I owe it to her, especially since I managed to get around taking her to Mamma Mia! (Go me!)

Why am I still smiling? And all I did was watch the trailer. Looking forward to seeing this one.

I finally went to see it last night (it's been out here for a while and I'd been meaning to go for ages). :) I liked it a lot and thought it was very sweet (though there are some rather dark moments as well), but my boyfriend didn't think it was that good. There's really not that much of a plot and he was a little annoyed by Poppy's constant cheerfulness (which really can get a little much after a while). I guess the film isn't for everyone, but I'd definitely recommend it. :)
