Very colorful characters, representing common attitudes of...

Happy-Go-Lucky (2008)
director: Mike Leigh
starring: Sally Hawkins, Eddie Marsan, Alexis Zegerman

Mike Leigh is a brilliant director and his talents have never let me down. Ever. From his masterful film Naked, his Oscar-nominated Secrets & Lies, his eccentric Topsy-Turvy to his heartbreaking Vera Drake, Mr. Leigh has...
