When did we become too cynical for a feel good comedy? It doesn't seem like that
long ago, really, that quirky indies - largely hailing from the UK - celebrated blue collar roots with simple, funny stories of regular people in odd situations and went on to become significant hits. I'm thinking movies like The Full Monty
, Billy Elliott
and Waking Ned Devine
That sort of filmmaking appears to have been largely abandoned in more recent years but Lance Daly's Irish effort Life's A Breeze
- just announced as a selection of the Toronto International Film Festival - feels very much lake a blast from that particular past.
The story here revolves around a family who try to do grandma a favor by clearing up her house only to discover too late that the old mattress they sent off to the dump contained her life savings of nearly a million Euro. In cash. Oops.
The trailer's a charmer, take a look below.
