A whimsical comedy. Melanie Lynskey glows in this performance --Chicago Sun-Times

Funny. Deftly written and terrifically acted --USA Today

Product Description

HELLO I MUST BE GOING features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey (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 directionless, Amy begins an affair with 19 year old actor Jeremy (GIRLS Christopher Abbott) that reignites her passion for life and jumpstarts her independence. Coupling Danners riveting performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey s endearing depiction of both the comic and tragic avenues of life at a crossroads, HELLO is a modern, unconventional love story infused with sex, humor, and raw emotional honesty.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cure for Agoraphobia September 24, 2012
This is pretty standard romantic comedy fare; the most amusing part is the May/December romance (well, not really December...) which features a (sorta) older woman and a younger man.

A recent divorcée has to move back home because her husband wanted the divorce and she has never held a job. Now she is caught in a spiral of embarrassment, ennui, and agoraphobia. Her well-meaning parents are anxious for her to get out and start to take an interest in life: she hasn't left the house for three months. They decide to throw a party for one of Dad's clients to pave the way for his possible retirement, while at the same time, to motivate their daughter to change out of her old t-shirt and meet some new people.

We meet:
* Melanie Lynskey ("Ever After") is Amy, sorely in need of an antidepressant; she mixes her metaphors and says, "I had the rug pulled over my eyes."
* Blythe Danner ("The Lucky One") is Ruth, her mother, who reads Dr. Seuss to her grandchildren and longs to have some "alone time" with her husband on a lengthy cruise.
* Christopher Abbot ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") is Jeremy, the best anti-depressant our heroine ever tried! He tells his mother he is gay so she will quit trying to set up blind dates.
* John Rubinstein (Lots of TV) is Stan, who really IS reluctant to retire and Gallivant the Globe with his wife.
* Julie White ("Inside Out") is Gwen, the former classmate who never knew our heroine existed, but now she's in her face.

We sometimes forget that it might not be all that great to be nineteen again, particularly when the woman you love views you as a boy toy.

I liked the soundtrack which included "Oh the fox went out on a chilly night, prayed to the moon to give him light, He'd many a mile to go that night, before he reached the town-o, town-o, town-o...." will notify me when the DVD is available.

4.0 out of 5 stars Engaging divorce and family drama October 6, 2012
"Hello I Must Be Going" (2012 release; 95 min.) brings the story of Amy (played by Melanie Lynskey), a thirty-something who has just moved back into her parens' house after her husband left and divorced her. Amy hasn't legt the house in three months and doesn't get up before noon. In other words: depressed. Amy's dad, who is a lawyer, is trying to woo a potential new client, and at a dinner party with the potential new client and his extended family including his 19 yr. old stepson Jeremy (played by Christopher Abbott), Jeremy and Amy develop an instant crush on each other. Soon therafter, they have a fully blooming affair. Inevitably, one day, they get found out. To tell you more of the plot would ruin your viewing experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Several comments: (1) it must be Melanie Lynskey weekend for me here in Cincinnati: I just saw her yesterday in a (much smaller) role in "The Perks of Being a Wallflower" and now today she stars front and center in this movie. It is easily one of her best roles ever, like she was made to play this role. If the movie gets any legs in the theatres, she might be a contender for an Leading Actress Oscar Nomination. (2) While the subject matter of the movie certainly is nothing new, it is brought to life by screenwriter Sarah Koskoff and director Todd Louiso (a Cincinnati native I might add, graduated from the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts). (3) Check out also the very nice original soundtrack, which is courtesy of Canadian singer-songwriter Laura Veirs.

Last but not least, if you are wondering about the movie's title: Amy is watching a number of Marx Brothers films throughout the movie, reminding her of happier times in her youth when hanging out with dad.

5.0 out of 5 stars All Of Life's Little Curves At One Time January 19, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Although this film might be seen as formulaic, it's the two female leads that make it work. Amy is quirky & slightly puzzled & lost in wonder. Her mother is so grounded she can't seem to ever get off the ground. There are dreams & nightmares but they are real life for the characters in this movie & you get to watch how they deal with those moments because like all dreams & nightmares, they tend to come to a quick end. I wouldn't call this a slice of life but compressed life. I'm really glad I watched it & I'll watch it again. Melanie Lynskey is a wonderful actress & she has a natural beauty that reminds me of Kelly MacDonald & Emily Mortimer. Although I know it will not impress her to find this out, she has added another fan to her circle that I am certain is very wide & quite full.

I'm sure it will get compared to Silver Linings Playbook but it is not as good. While SLP has the Hollywood happy ending it is also more realistic. I'm a little tired of watching rich people cope with their problems. I know their problems are the same but it's hard to care about a poor little rich girl.

The movie is well acted and Melanie Lynskey is great but the whole resolution at the end felt like a film school project. In spite fo all this, I liked it because of Lynskey's performance and felt it was compelling.

Four stars seems a bit much but according to Amazon, it means only that "I like it," which is true.
