Happy-Go-Lucky — Movie Review


Happy-Go-Lucky.  Have you seen it ?  It’s a British Film by Mike Leigh. It’s been out on DVD for quite a while.  The main character, Poppy, portrayed by Sally Hawkins, exemplifies the song "Always Look on the Bright Side of Life" written by Eric Idle of Monty Python and featured in the film Life of Brian.  Poppy is someone who does not let life get her down.  She always looks for the best in others and in her circumstances.  The film doesn’t really have a huge dramatic plot, rather meandering through Poppy’s day-to-day life, illustrating the way she deals with challenging situations and people.  Situations and people which might have caused some of us to get really cheesed off do not affect her.  She lets things flow off her, like water on a duck’s back.  She is genuinely interested in people and takes time to get to know them. 

While I enjoyed the movie as I was watching it, I have to admit when it was over I wondered what it was all about.  Then as I sat and talked about it with my husband I realized how incredibly brilliant and what a gem Happy-Go-Lucky is.  Poppy’s attitude about life, her ability to let things go and just be there in the moment is admirable.  I’m really glad that I watched the movie first and then looked at the review on IMDB second.  (Always a good tactic in my opinion).  While there are many favorable reviews there are also some on the IMDB who just did not seem to enjoy this movie at all –some found Poppy  "depressingly optimistic and naive".

Yes, Poppy is optimistic and does find the humor and wonder in things.  Is she a totally realistic character?  Probably not.  But what I loved about the movie and about her character was her ability to not get bogged down by people, places and situations.  She takes things in her stride and enjoys life.  

Now I know that life is a serious business and that no one gets out of life alive and that people around the world are suffering.  Right now thousands, upon thousands of people are suffering all over the world in one way or another. Yet I ask myself, even in a situation where there is suffering what would the character of Poppy do?  She would listen,  love and bring a smile to someone’s face.  In the midst of massive suffering and grief, life goes on and Poppy would bring a smile.   

I’ve already recommended this lovely movie to several people and now I am recommending it to all of you. Let me know what you think.

Overcoming Disappointment – Lesson from the Oscars – Motivational Moment

Dr. Mitzi, from the Red Rock Canyon area in Summerlin, Nevada, speaks about  overcoming disappointments.  She discusses how Avatar was beat out by The Hurt Locker at The Oscars  to get best picture and best director.  Kathryn Bigelow made history being the first woman ever, in the 82 year history of the Oscars, to receive an Oscar for Best Director. Only three women have been nominated before her: Lina Wertmuller for Seven Beauties, Jane Campion for The Piano and Sofia Coppola for Lost in Translation. Barbara Streisand who presented the award was clearly delighted saying as she opened the envelope: "Well, the time has come."

The Hurt Locker, one of the smallest budget movies to be nominated for several decades, defeated the enormous budget, highest grossing movie of all time, Avatar.   In all Hurt Locker won a total of six Oscars; picture, director, original screenplay, sound editing, sound mixing and film editing, to Avatar’s three Oscars for cinematography, visual effects and art direction.

Interestingly, Kathryn Bigelow and James Cameron were married to each other from 1989 -1991.  In an interview  with James Cameron before the Oscars on National Public Radio’s (NPR’s) Fresh Air, Terry Gross asked him how he felt about being up against his former wife at the Oscars.  He had only kind words to say, both about her work and talent.  He stated that her accolades were way overdue and that he was always the first to cheer when she had success.  He asserted how he had steadfastly promoted and supported her career and that while they had been married for two years twenty years ago they had been colleages, collaborators and close friends since then, with him producing two of her movies, one after they had divorced.

In another interview before the Oscars James Cameron confided to Charlie Rose, that his fantasy outcome would be for Avatar to win Best Picture and for Best Director to go to Kathryn Bigelow. When Charlie Rose asked him if he truly would be happier with that than if he took both awards himself, Cameron said : "Honestly, yes."
