Hello I Must Be Going is the selected film to open this year’s Sundance Film Festival. This independent film will be in theatres on September 7th 2012. Hello I Must Be Going is directed by Todd Louiso which features the acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey as Amy who recently got divorce and is seeking refuge in the home of her parents in Connecticut. Hello I Must Be Going is an unconventional and modern take on love, humour and emotional honesty where a lot of people can definitely relate to. So what else can we expect in this movie? Let’s take a look at an early news on this film written by Andrew O’Hehir:
“Hello I Must Be Going: A Beautiful Romantic Comedy With A Wide Range
PARK CITY, Utah — In keeping with Robert Redford’s stern opening-night admonition that his festival is “all about independent filmmaking artists — we always have been and we always will be,” here’s a Sundance item bereft of color commentary, celebrity sightings or observations about the Utah weather (which remains unseasonably mild). Todd Louiso’s wry, sharply-observed romantic comedy “Hello I Must Be Going” premiered late on Thursday night, and if it’s too subtle (and too similar to several other low-key indie romcoms) to make a big splash, it’s got lovely performances and really builds strength as it goes along.
If Louiso’s name rings a dim and distant bell in your mind, it may be because of his quasi-legendary supporting performance as a know-it-all record-store clerk in Stephen Frears’ “High Fidelity,” lo, these many years ago. He’s now primarily a director, and on the evidence quite a skilled one. The problem with “Hello I Must Be Going” is that Sarah Koskoff’s screenplay starts out so modestly: You think it’s just going to be a female early-midlife-crisis movie, or an older-woman/younger-guy love story, and, heck, it is both of those things. But to my taste, as the movie goes along it becomes much richer and funnier than that summary suggests, painting a satirical but sympathetic portrait of upper-crust family life in Westport, Conn., a rather toff and beachy New York suburb.
New Zealand actress Melanie Lynskey is terrific as a depressed, 30-something recent divorcee named Amy, who has moved back in with her Westport parents, who simultaneously support and undermine her in all the wrong ways. Her hypercritical mom is Blythe Danner and her willfully blind high-end lawyer dad is John Rubinstein, and each of them is worth the price of admission by themselves. Amy’s life of watching TV and eating cookies is upended by the handsome and thoughtful Jeremy (Christopher Abbott), a fast-rising young actor known for his recent largely-nude performance in a play about Robert Mapplethorpe. Everyone around Jeremy, especially his therapist mom (the hilarious Julie White) assumes he’s gay, but once he’s one-on-one with Amy, that proves to be untrue. Jeremy is arguably much more mature and together than Amy is, but the fact remains that he’s also 19 years old.”
