Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, Hello I Must Be Goingfeatures 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 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 subtly riveting performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey’s endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic avenues of an existential 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.
