Happy-Go-Lucky ★★★★★

perhaps nothing will put me more at ease about turning 30 than our greatest testament to the power of compassion? I spent a lot of time thinking about how my college advisor - who, for the record, had a very similar vibe to Poppy - preached the importance of what she called "active gratitude." platitudinal language aside... I simp harder for Leigh when he's doing his contemporary humanist dramedies than the period pieces, Hawkins a joy, Zegerman a joy, good for Eddie Marsan, if Andrea Riseborough was in this movie, I am a victim of Andrea Riseborough face blindness. teachers are our most important resource and we (society) treat them like shit (unrelated to film, just my observation). great movie!
