To reward myself for a great morning of Christmas shopping, I treated myself to the enchanting film Happy-Go-Lucky. Poppy is an elementary school teacher with a vibrant spirit and a lovely life. It is not without flaws, it is real. She encounters a miserable soul, who is her driving instructor. In one of the most passionate scenes I've seen in a long time, he explodes in an articulate rant that encapsulates his feelings and the essence of Poppy. Poppy's response is appropriate and mature. A good film about life, love, friendship, family and living. I liked this one.
