It’s always a joy to see Melanie Lynskey on the screen, usually in great supporting roles in films such as The Informant!, Win Win, Up in the Air and Away We Go. But the actress, who broke out in Peter Jackson‘s Heavenly Creatures, is returning to the lead arena in a new drama Hello I Must Be Going.
Directed by Todd Louiso, one may recognize Christopher Abbott (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Girls), as a young man who begins a relationship with Lynskey’s character, who recently went through a divorce. Reviews seemed to be mostly mixed coming out of the festival, but I’ll watch anything with Lynskey and this first trailer via Apple shows promise. Check it out below for the film also starring Blythe Danner, along with the first poster.
Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, HELLO I MUST BE GOING features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey (WIN WIN, UP IN THE AIR, TWO AND A HALF MEN) in her breakout role as Amy, a recent divorcee who seeks refuge in the suburban Connecticut home of her parents (Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein). Demoralized and uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19-year-old actor (GIRLS’ Christopher Abbott) that jumpstarts her passion for life and helps her discover an independence and sense of purpose that she has missed for years. Coupling Danner’s subtly riveting performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey’s endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic avenues of an existential crossroads, HELLO I MUST BE GOING is a modern, unconventional love story infused with sex, humor, and emotional honesty–everything Amy will need to get on in life.
Hello I Must Be Going hits theaters on September 7th, 2012.
