SAT 9/22 FOLLOWING THE 2:00PM & 7:00PM SHOWS Moderated by Professor Richard Brown of Movies 101
Opening this year’s Sundance Film Festival, HELLO I MUST BE GOING features Melanie Lynskey (WIN WIN, UP IN THE AIR) in her breakout role as Amy, a recent divorcee who seeks refuge in the suburban home of her parents. Uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19 year old actor (GIRLS’ Christopher Abbott) that jumpstarts her passion for life. Coupling Blythe Danner’s subtly riveting performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey’s endearing and nuanced depiction of an existential crossroads, HELLO I MUST BE GOING is a modern, unconventional love story infused with sex, humor, and emotional honesty.
