High hopes

I saw Happy-Go-Lucky last night. I can see some people will find the film inane but I liked it. Mike Leigh and his collaborators do something that is at first sight small in ambition, well. They also illustrate a point articulated as follows by Raymond Tallis (in The Hand, drawing on Kenan Malik and others):
Committed primary school teachers and nurses are as real as concentration camp guards or their tragic victims.
