Hello I Must Be Going Reviews
But somehow it was kind of meh. Not bad, not by a long shot, but just quite dull viewing. I don't know why.
Cast are good. Movie looks nice. Good story about a young woman who's marriage has failed and she's returned home temporarily with all the problems that entails. Good end message about standing on your own two feet.
Really should have been something more than it was.
(2012) Hello, I Must Be Going
Not bad movie, but was only credible up until a certain point, which was until the female main star who's middle age, begin to have one of many affairs with a 19 year old young man. The movie stars, Amy (Melanie Lynskey) who still can't get over a recent divorce from her husband of many years. And she shows this by staying with her parents house without taking one step outside- similar to how a hermit would live. While hanging around there, her mother(Blyth Danner) then informs her, that as a result her husband trying to get some clients, both of them can go on to their pre-planned world wide vacation except that they're expected to have dinner with the main boss. Upon bringing his own family to this dinner also includes his 19 year old actor son, Jeremy (Christopher Abbott). It's like Jeremy doesn't seem to have any other friends from high school or college, no mentioning of any goals, including the fact that it would take an affair with a 19 year old to help a middle age woman identify herself is something one can see from a soap opera except that it's more credible on a soap opera than it would be for a two hour movie since it would require a time spawn of several months if not years for anything like that to happen.
2 out of 4 stars
"Hello I Must Be Going" is a nice movie that sidesteps many a serious issue. Like instead of depression, the movie is about two people finding themselves after finding each other. While Jeremy is young enough to make things intriguing, he is old enough to keep the story out of Catherine Breillat territory. In any case, Melanie Lynskey makes for a pleasant enough lead in this amiable movie.
