Happy go lucky
Directed by Mike Leigh. With Sally Hawkins, Elliot Cowan, Alexis Zegerman.
The simple story of Poppy, a light hearted 30 year old woman who is insightful and foolish at the same time. Happy Go lucky is really a movie talking about happiness.You might find it a bit sugary at first. “Ok, she is happy we get it.” “Oh and she is funny and empathic. Yeah riiight!” “This girl is bugging me with her smiley face and all.” But you might also find it comforting. “That’s the way to live it” “Is it based on a real person? Can I meet her?” Simple lines but strong understanding: “This is nice” “Isn’t it just?”
I remember being annoyed at first, but after a while, Poppy seemed like this friend I would love having in my everyday life. Because even through the movie screen she was contagious enough to get me started on a happiness fix, cause it looked so simple. In a way having a real live example of a person enjoying life as it is as much as that character does, it kind of beats even the best books I have read on the subject 😉
Yes I would definitely recommend this movie as well !
the perfect quote for our hostess:
Zoe: You can’t make everyone happy.
Poppy: There’s no harm in trying, now, is there?
May the winds be with you Jo. Bon voyage!
We should all at least try, at most excel.
