Happy-Go-Lucky

Just how hard is it to be happy?
  • And that's the global weather report for today!

Mike Leigh's latest movie has acquired a string of nominations and awards. One of his most upbeat movies, it is a character study of a young London school teacher, who is irrepressibly optimistic. Nothing gets her down, not even her bicycle getting stolen. Instead, she signs up for driving lessons, which forms the bulk of the story. Her instructor is a grumpy old soul, but will her upbeat charm rub off on him? She also interacts with several other people, all of whom are affected one way or the other by her cheerfulness.
