Director: Mike Leigh
Starring: Sally Hawkins, Eddie Marsan, Alexis Zegerman
Screening as part of HeadFest 22, Happy-Go-Lucky is Mike Leigh‘s charming and uplifting comedy, starring a spellbinding performance from Sally Hawkins.
We are delighted to screen the film followed by a talk and seated yoga session with Dr Sunil Lad, Consultant Counselling Psychologist at Northamptonshire Healthcare Foundation Trust.
Kind-hearted and free-spirited teacher Poppy Cross (Hawkins) is an eternal optimist who lives with her more cynical friend Zoe (Alexis Zegerman).
After her bicycle is stolen, Poppy decides she wants to learn to drive, and starts taking lessons from Scott (Eddie Marsan), a gloomy and intolerant instructor who believes Poppy’s levity reflects a lack of seriousness. Although they clash, Poppy is not deterred from her goal.
