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 (Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein). Demoralized and uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19-year-old actor (Christopher Abbott) 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.
"Succeeds almost entirely on the strength of Melanie Lynskey's heartfelt and humorous performance in the lead role."
-Michael O'Sullivan, WASHINGTON POST
"A funny, well-written, involving and emotionally honest tale."
-Claudia Puig, USA TODAY
"Lynskey inhabits the role so completely, brings such exquisite naturalness to her performance, that she becomes someone we root for unreservedly." -Kenneth Turan, LOS ANGELES TIMES
