I had to watch this movie because there was so much hype for Oscars and all these British Independent Film Awards. Oscars is great for commercial films but these British movies are more geared towards independent films.
There couldn't be a better title for this movie, it's about a girl named Poppy played by Sally Hawkins being a super 'happy go-lucky' girl. She's so jolly and so very gung-ho about life that nothing much seems to bother her.
Just like the beginning scenes, where she would park her bike, and next min. her bike gets stolen and she just brushed it off as if nothing happened. That's the kind of person she is. Sally did a super good job playing the character. It's not about a girl having a gung ho mentality, but she did a superb job in playing it in her character.
The director and the write of Mike Leigh did a great job with the script. The entire movie is very easy to follow, boring at times but the last scene was awesome.
Poppy (sally hawkins) decided to take driving lessons and Scott is played by Eddie Marsan (Best Supporting Actor). Scott is a very unhappy, intense, crazy, wtf hilter dude that takes his job way too seriously for a driving instructor. Long story short, poppy and scott goes on multiple driving lessons and at the end of the movie, it goes into this intense scene between poppy and Scott.
This movie is a good watch, i really really enjoyed Eddie Marsan and Sally Hawkins's performance. OH, btw, the movie is a british made film so be prepared to listen to some thick accent. It's not a great watch for those who are NOT into hollywood films and do enjoy a great performance.
Arguing on the internet is like running in the SPECIAL OLYMPICS.
Even if you win, you're still retarded.
