Synopsis / Plot
The adventures of Poppy. Is she perhaps a little crazy and irresponsible? Or is she in fact deeply sane and sensible? Either way, everybody falls in love with her,
for better or for worse… Mike Leigh’s new film revolves around Poppy, a teacher from north London whose life, at first glance, seems to be full of complications.
