I know I'm a bit late about this but I just watched this movie few weeks ago and this is currently my fave movie and very recommended to watch!!
Played by a glorious Sally Hawkins, this movie shares story about a 30-year-old eternally optimistic and cheerful primary school teacher named Poppy, short for Pauline. Her life is not as bright as it looks although she keeps insisting that she's perfectly happy (smiles on her face and waves at strangers on the street and laughs incessantly) despite the fact that she's still single even though she's already reached the ripe old age of 30, super temperamental and humorless racist instructor named Scott in her driving lesson (screams En-ra-ha everytime Poppy takes the wheel. Yikes!), and her attempts to help a troubled little boy's bullying case in her classroom. But Poppy keeps moving forward and dancing (clubbing and flamenco lesson? checked!) and jumping (trampoline course? checked!) and laughing (a gurgling, burbling stream of gasps, giggles and words? checked!).
This is not 'just a movie'. It's different than other comedy movies. Just a bit typical British movies, imho. This movie is highly enjoyable (make you laugh till your jaws stiff, like what I felt. Ha), but it also carries terrible sadness.
Of course, the Oscar nod (nomination for Best Writing, Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen) goes to Mike Leigh! Salute to him for sharing a life package of independent woman with tenderly expresses in a surrealistic interlude through this movie.
Through these pictures above, her colorful retro-hippie clothes are really inspiring. And she always wear THOSE tan cowboy boots, mostly paired with lace tights. Very catchy! Blue stripes cardigan with pink top is cool. Leopard cardigan and pink abstract top? Lovely. How about denim on denim? Fab. The jeans jacket is totally cute. Makes me want to wear more and more colors, don't you think? =D
"We didn’t even get a chance to say goodbye."
- Poppy (when the bike is stolen)
"Oh! What-chu-ma-call-it ding dang dilly dilly da da hoo hoo"
- Poppy (I often blurt it out when I'm talking. Ha!)
"What am I supposed to call you?
Oh how 'bout, Poppy?
Yeah. No, whatever turns you on Scott, I don't mind."
- Scott and Poppy
"You can't make everyone happy.
There's no harm in trying that Zoe, is there?"
- Zoe and Poppy
But oh, one thing gets me annoyed. I googled for its soundtrack and I found zero. Oh pleaseeee.. no soundtrack list for this? I only caught one song by Pulp (an English new wave/brit pop band) called 'Common People' on the clubbing scene. It's a great song and Pulp is one of my fave bands :)
