Moira+I maintained our 2008 commitment to cinema attendance by going to see “Happy-Go-Lucky” at the Watershed yesterday. I thought Mike Leigh’s film was lovely (really enjoyed Sally Hawkins’s performance) and, although she enjoyed it too, Moira found it rather blacker than she had anticipated. The Watershed blurb talks about it balancing “moments of humour and glimpses of melancholy which coalesce into a deeply affecting and joyful celebration of life, happiness, friendship and love”. Think Moira thought I’d have been perfect for the role as the grumpy driving instructor!
What! Who me?
