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.

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...."

Amazon.com will notify me when the DVD is available.

This small budget film stars Melanie Lynskey, formerly famous as the next-door neighbor to Charlie Sheen's character in Two and a Half Men, and since the demise of that long-running TV show trying to establish whether she can or cannot do serious acting (in the lead role) in a full-length movie, not only deliver funny one-liners. Yes, she can. [And I know, it's not her first either]

She gives a fine and nuanced performance to her part, in this non-comedic 94 minute story about a young woman recovering from a divorce, about her parents and their problems, her friends, and about her unexpectedly beginning a relationship that intellectually she tells herself cannot possibly be long-term, and really would best be avoided altogether. And, about what this relationship teaches her that she hadn't learned at home, nor in college, nor in her first marriage, about love relationships. There are no characters here without their flaws (just like in real life) but there is something here about love meaning overlooking or accepting the flaws, and about growth.

I didn't see this as just a love story, nor as a comedy, nor as a drama [aka: Depressing Movie, or Lifetime TV movie] but as a good character study (or several of them). There is nothing flashy about the cinematography, the plot is modest, and there are no Lines for the Ages, but there's plenty of close-ups on the faces, which really requires the actors to ACT, in order for it to work. It works. [Perhaps the least well-drawn character is the lead male, which seemed a little two-dimensional compared to the rest of the main characters].

[The R is for some swearing, some depiction of sexual acts without any significant nudity, and one scene involving marijuana use].

"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.
