If you want to make the most of the fresh start this spring has to offer. Then go to see “HAPPYTHANKYOUMOREPLEASE.” It’s warm, young and as promising as the spring. It’s also a promising debut of the actor Josh Radnor as a writer and director. The movie was first shown at the Sundance Film Festival in January of 2010 and won the audience award for favorite US drama.
What I loved about the movie is that it has three independent stories. It is more of an ensemble rather than a story of one character. The stories are simple and real but that’s what makes them so compelling. Six young New Yorkers who are learning how to appreciate friendship, love and happiness. Josh Radnor’s character Sam is a struggling writer who unexpectedly finds a friend on the subway, a young boy named Rasheen. When Sam takes him to a police station and Rasheen refuses to go there. It turns out that the boy has been in six different foster homes. After learning that, Sam decides to keep him for a couple of days. Sam’s crush on Mississippi, an aspiring singer, gets serious and he has to figure out how to manage his fear of losing her and his fear of commitment. Sam’s close friend, Annie learns to receive love and adoration from a man that she would never consider as a potential boyfriend. A young couple, Mary-Catherine and Charlie, who are also friends with Sam, have to deal with “unexpected happiness” and their potential move to LA.
The movie is definitely worth the price of admission. It makes you think, laugh, and cry and just have a good time. It is about positive transformations of the characters and I think that’s what makes a good movie. It has a lot to offer to females and males of different ages. It is one of those movies that has tons of catchy witty phrases that will stick with you for a while. And, the first one is going to be: HAPPY THANK YOU MORE PLEASE
