Director Mike Leigh has been around for a while — directing such films as Vera Drake and Topsy-Turvy. And with those films, he’s developed a solid base of appreciators. And with his latest film Happy-Go-Lucky, the story of an unrelentingly optimistic young woman named Poppy (played by Sally Hawkins), I’d be willing to bet that his fan base is bound to grow. As is the base of Sally Hawkins, who was described by my good friend Pete Sciretta at Slashfilm as delivering “one hell of a performance” in this film.
