Featuring the incomparable Miriam Margolyes and with a dazzling cast of Australian stars that include Richard Roxburgh, Deborah Mailman, Joel Jackson (who joined us at BBFF2017 with Jungle) and Emma Booth, H Is for Happiness is true to its title, offering a gleeful coming of age story of young Candice Phee (a picture perfect Daisy Axon). Based on the young adult novel My Life as an Alphabet, the film embodies a semi-serious theme that should appeal to Byron’s new-age positive thinkers (of deciding upon and “manifesting” your own cheerful reality), when Candice embarks upon a programme of schemes to make her depressed and divided family happy again. Be warned: viewers are likely to be affected by irrepressible laughter and long-lasting high spirits.
