THE HAPPY POET is an all-organic, mostly vegetarian comedy about Bill, a struggling poet who pours his heart, soul, and last few dollars into starting a healthy food stand, surprising friends and customers with his dry wit and offbeat passion. Motivated by help from a rag-tag group of supporters and a budding romance with a poetry-loving customer, Bill strives to make a difference in the world, until complications jeopardize his dreams.

Great Indie Film. It's quirky and interesting, got a lot of different themes. To environmental economics, healthy eating consciousness to personal choices and consequences. The characters are everyday people and can't help to think that there's some of Paul Gordon (creator/director/lead actor)in Bill. It's intellectually creative, love Indie Films! This quite good:)

A true sleeper film, The Happy Poet stayed under the radar for far too long. The plot is simple; a guy with a dream of running an almost vegetarian food cart decides to make his dream come true. But after he buys a used hot dog cart, the pressure is on to compromise by selling hot dogs, while suffering help from a cast of iconic Austin characters.

Filmed before the Austin food trailer scene evolved from fad to phenomenon, indie film fans who've spent any time in Austin will recognize the charm, and the weirdness, and not a few outstanding Austin based actors.

The humor is often dry, with a healthy dose of heart, you just may find yourself craving an eggless egg salad, and wondering what writer/director/actor Paul Gordon will be doing next.

I don't really know what could have made this better. It's a charming story about a man who had good intentions to the point that his good heart appears to be his greatest flaw. It's a gentle story that goes at its own pace... brisk enough to keep one's interest while not abandoning the viewer in the creator's vision. If you'd like a break from Hollywood, this film will entertain you - even if you don't think you like indie films. Well worth your time.
