H Is For Happiness has more on its mind than most kids' flicks and delivers its ideas in an attractive, if familiar, package.

This unusual children's film may be fussy, but to its credit, it is not frivolous.

Provides feel-good entertainment for the entire family without pandering - and definitely without sacrificing style or substance.

What could have been trite and mawkish turns out to be really rather engaging.

February 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

There is much to appreciate in this film; much to like. You don't just watch it in big bright colours; you remember it in big bright colours too.
