Who needs plot?
I thought such unconditionally optimistic characters like this only existed in fairy tales such as Enchanted, but alas I was wrong. We have seen boatloads of cynical bastards in movies so why not the complete opposite. Being a die hard pessimist myself it was interesting to see how the other side lives and surprisingly I didn't feel like choking anyone. It's usually those downer, I have so much to over come performances that get all the praise so it's unfortunate that Sally Hawkins will ultimately be overlooked for this memorable role as the perpetually cheerful Poppy. It was delightful to spend two hours in her company.
