Bill needs to find a livelihood that will allow him to keep writing his blank verse. He decides on setting up an organic food stand called, natch, The Happy Poet. His jousting with economic ruin is accompanied by the familiar indie film staples of a scruffy friend, an alluring woman who smokes a pipe, and the threat of a few broken bones if the dream doesn’t succeed in turning his life around. Writer/director/star Paul Gordon‘s film looks like a smallscale charmer. Screening at the SXSW Film Festival.
