Debuting at Sundance this year to very positive reviews, particularly for its leading lady Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World), Hello I Must Be Going looks like one of the year’s very promising dramatic comedies.
A new set of images have made their way online, along with EW’s debut of the charming first poster, seeing Lynskey swimming naked alongside Christopher Abbott (Girls, Martha Marcy May Marlene). There’s no actual nudity though, so not to worry – entirely suitable should you be at work.
“Divorced and demoralized Amy Minsky’s prospects look bleak when she is condemned to move back in with her parents at the age of 35. Everyone wants to help, but, as her patience level with advice is plummeting, a bold teenage boy enters her life, igniting her last bit of self-esteem. What ensues is an unconventional love story infused with all the good things Amy needs to get on in life, and that just may include great sex.”
Todd Louiso (The Marc Pease Experience, Love Liza) returns behind the camera for his third film, directing from a script by Sarah Koskoff, who makes her writing debut here, with Blythe Danner (Meet the Parents), John Rubinstein (Red Dragon), and Julie White (Transformers) co-starring.
Hello I Must Be Going will be released in the US on 7th September, and here’s to hoping that it will get a release on our shores too, because it sounds very promising. As usual with the poster and images below (the second of which has surfaced before, but is in now in higher resolution), you can click to enlarge.
