September 1st, 2019 - H is for Happiness

A can-do teenage heroine tries to fix her family's problems in this sparky Australian debut

The ups and downs of adolescence fuel the upbeat, heartfelt H Is For Happiness, the big-screen adaptation of Barry Jonsberg’s popular young adult novel My Life as an Alphabet. Boasting an adult cast that includes Miriam Margolyes, Richard Roxburgh, Emma Booth and Deborah Mailman, this coming-of-age charmer follows a precocious 12-year-old who tries to fix her family’s problems with unfettered optimism. Finding its genial, quirky groove early, John Sheedy’s family film flirts with tweeness but ultimately bubbles with the same spark as its can-do protagonist.
