“This delightful coming-of-age dramedy provides feel-good entertainment for the entire family without pandering - or sacrificing style or substance.” Variety
Adapted from Barry Jonsberg’s award-winning young-adult novel ‘My Life as an Alphabet’, H IS FOR HAPPINESS is a rainbow-coloured, vivacious, feel-good film that will delight and engage the whole family.
Set in a small Australian coastal town, 12-year-old Candice Phee (Daisy Axon) is a smart schoolgirl with boundless optimism and a unique view of the world. She’s a fountain of offbeat information and bright ideas but her frequently raised hand elicits derision from her classmates and plenty of eye-rolling from her teacher Miss Bamford (Miriam Margolyes).
Her perpetually cheery nature belies Candice’s unhappy home life and lack of friends. Bereavement, financial struggles and estrangement from her ‘Rich Uncle Brian’ (Joel Jackson) have cast a shadow over her parents (Emma Booth and Richard Roxburgh). Inspired by the strange new boy at school, ‘Douglas Benson From Another Dimension’ (Wesley Patten), Candice sets out to do whatever it takes to mend her broken family.
With its whimsical design, witty direction and delightful performances from the young leads, H IS FOR HAPPINESS is a bright, entertaining and playful film which contains within a refreshingly direct take on family problems, friendship and acceptance of difference.
H IS FOR HAPPINESS is released to download/stream from 29 March 2021
