Must-See Cinema for this side of the Atlantic...

I really wanted to see Mike Leigh's film Happy-Go-Lucky at the 2008 Berlinale in February. However, because of some debaucherous nights and journalistic commitments during the day, I never made it to a single film during this festival. I was really happy to hear that it was playing in LA, and last night, DTC and I made it over to the Landmark, and after paying out a hefty $12, we saw the film. It was amazing. Without sounding like an arrogant prick, I felt like my knowledge of Briticisms definitely heightened my experience with this film, as I seemed to be laughing at parts when the rest of the audience was stone cold silent. Long and short of it: This film is a MUST-SEE.
