Poppy (Sally Hawkins) is an irrepressibly cheerful primary school teacher who won't let anyone or anything get her down. Even when her bicycle, which she so happily rides through the busy streets of London is stolen, her first thought is only: "I didn't even get a chance to say goodbye."

Living with her flatmate Zoe (Alexis Zergerman), Poppy has a gift for making the most of life. Determined to learn to drive, she finds herself matched with Scott (Eddie Marsan), an uptight driving instructor who is everything she is not.

From Director Mike Leigh (Vera Drake) HAPPY-GO-LUCKY is a laugh-out-loud comedy about having fun, looking for love and getting on with life.


Lovely movie. Worth voting hot for that, let alone the price.

I would check out some reviews of the film - I gave up watching after 15 minutes - the lead character was just to annoying.....

Funnily enough, a friend of mine said that, afroylnt. I have loved all of the Mike Leigh-directed movies that I have seen. They're quite distinctive, and I suspect that you either love em or hate em.

It does seem to be a marmite film. And, personally, I loved it.


Loved the film when we saw it at cinema. Thought it would be a bit of a girl's film, but my dh enjoyed it too. Sweet, sensitive, simple, funny, and a refreshing change from the usual crummy 'blockbusters' that circulate. The unintrusive filming, the fact that the child actors in it were all normal children and not stage-school wannabes, and that the script was created by and around the actors/actresses all give it a real life feel - far away from all that studio polished stuff.

Am going to buy this for a friend to remind her of her student days!
