An anti-miserablist film. A lark, but one with Mike Leigh's signature well-defined characters.

There are three extras on the disc, including an excellent full-length audio commentary by writer/ director Mike Leigh.

It doesn't matter whether one really 'likes' Poppy, only that they recognize in her the proactive application of joy as a weapon -- as well as something that keeps her in a state of arrested development.

A character tour-de-force for Sally Hawkins, but also a great vehicle for Eddie Marsan as the driving instructor who turns out to be her nemesis.

A bit lean on the extras (some deleted scenes would have be nice), but Hawkins and Marsen's performances still make this Happy-Go-Lucky DVD worth every penny, don't they?

Mike Leigh draws a bravura performance out of Sally Hawkins, and she in return makes Poppy one of Leigh's best characters yet.
