Award-winning British comedy at Little Theatre

Jan. 5, 2009

KALAMAZOO--Kalamazoo Film Society presents the Golden Globe-nominated British comedy "Happy Go Lucky" Friday through Sunday, Jan. 9-11, in the Little Theatre at Western Michigan University.

"Happy Go Lucky" looks at the life of Poppy (Sally Hawkins), a 30-year-old London schoolteacher whose relentlessly upbeat view of life tends to frustrate those around her. The film chronicles a variety of situations that test Polly's optimistic outlook, from health problems and family disputes to the taunts and contempt of her troubled driving instructor.
