The Screen Guide

With humour and understanding, Genevieve Bailey’s box-office hit I Am Eleven showed us the interior lives of 11-year-olds from all over the world. Now her Happy Sad Man does the same for the men in our midst living with mental illness. Bringing together the vibrant personalities and perspectives of five very different men – taking in their hopes, anxieties, joy and darkness – the heartwarming, stigma-busting Happy Sad Man gives unforgettable voice to the complex emotional landscapes of modern masculinity and acts as a crucial clarion call for the eternally misunderstood world of mental illness.
