Just got back from HAPPY-GO-LUCKY (****), which is the surprise of the year. Sally Hawkins gives a performance I'll never forget; she will certainly be nominated for an Oscar this year. I really, really liked this film, possibly loved it. It's a small, internal, talky, and perfectly told story with a lot of spirit. And it's deceptively rich in subtext and theme. This is a strong film from Mike Leigh.
Full review will be up soon.
