  • Like its sad-sack main character, whose closed-off personality makes him hard to fully understand or sympathize with, The Happy Poet is too reservedly rough around the edges. show more

  • The consistent comic tone of those earlier scenes - a gentle squirm - makes The Happy Poet a promising debut. show more

  • Off-handed and yet quite artfully observed, The Happy Poet's winsome deadpan offsets its skewering of class and sustainability issues, right through to a tricky ending that, like Bill himself, may not be what it seems. show more
