Worth Watching - Aug 8: Mike Leigh's Happy-Go-Lucky Trailer
Miramax has debuted the trailer for Mike Leigh's new comedy Happy-Go-Lucky. This cheerful little film is about the boisterous and carefree Poppy, played by the bright up-and-coming actress Sally Hawkins, and the lack of romance in her life. Apparently Happy-Go-Lucky is a film festival sensation, but I haven't heard of it until now, so I'm not sure how big of a sensation it was. However, it is the latest from British filmmaker Mike Leigh, of films like Life Is Sweet, Secrets & Lies, Topsy-Turvy, and Vera Drake. I think the fact that the title card in this trailer is pink and sports cherries might mean that this is not exactly a guy's movie… by any means. However, if you're brave enough to watch it, you're more than welcome!

The film first premiered at the Berlin Film Festival back in February this year and has gone on to numerous other film fests. Miramax is currently releasing Happy-Go-Lucky in limited theaters starting on October 10th.
