Hello I Must Be Going2012

  • 3.8
Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, HELLO I MUST BE GOING features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey in her breakout role as Amy, a recent divorcée who seeks refuge in the suburban Connecticut home of her parents. Demoralized and uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19-year-old actor 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 subtle, moving performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey's endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic coming together at a 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.

I enjoyed this well-acted, heartfelt drama about a woman in transition. As the protagonist, Melanie Lynskey displays a natural style with which she brings uncommon depth to a character that is not flashy or dramatically neurotic. It was her normalcy that quickly won me over. Added bonus: great soundtrack by the wonderful Laura Veirs!

While mildly entertaining, I found this movie to also be irritating. It is the story of an emotionally wounded woman who was recently and unexpectedly divorced. Unfortunately, her new path is one of making bad decisions and then cursing about each one, before making another bad decision. Pampered by upper-middle class parents who have their own issues, she has little reason to improve herself, until late in the story.

An insipid take on a quasi-Romeo and Juliet plot amongst two wealthy dysfunctional families in the posh suburb of Westport, Connecticut. It's hard to get engaged in the romantic trials and tribulations of two rich kids whose parents are mostly concerned with decorating their mansion, getting new business clients, and taking a trip around the world. The acting is mediocre and unable to rescue what turns out to be just another suburban soap opera.

That movie was so good !

Engaging story about (authenticity in) relationships. Wonderful comedic moments paradoxically maintained a light mood while dysfunctional behaviors generate personal agonies on the way to enlightenment.
