An interesting character study of a lost soul who staggers, but eventually finds her way through a life that isn't what she expected it to be, coming to terms with what she discovers about herself at the crossroads where she faces up to the reality of what she really is. Melanie Lynskey shines in this tale of a midlife coming of age.
Melanie Lynskey I a great actress, love her work. She was remarkable in this movie. The storyline was okay, she is a divorcee who starts a relationship with a younger man. The movie was slow and nothing great, nothing memorable.
Love is sometimes found is the most unlikely places, and always when we aren't looking for it. 'Hello I Must Be Going' is a quirky story of a woman who finds herself through her divorce and unexpected romantic affections.
Melanie Lynskey is een juweeltje in deze film, en bewijst duidelijk dat ze sinds haar debuut in Heavenly Creatures nog steeds een film kan dragen. De humor is niet altijd evenwichtig en het acteren van Dan Futterman laat wat twijfels over, maar het is een prima low-budget komedie/drama die een taboe onderwerp goed aanpakt.
"Hello I Must Be Going" mostly works because of the humorous, light-hearted personality of the script and the irresistable performances of Melanie Lynskey (It's about time she's gotten a leading role) and Christopher Abbott.
Amy Minskey (Melanie Lynskey) has moved back home after her husband dumped her and is going through a rough patch. A twist on the May-December romance that really worked for this viewer. Ms Lynskey has a natural beauty and a style that invites sympathy as she tries to figure out how to move on without disappointing her parents (Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein) any further. It was good to see Julie White again, as well. A good cast, fine performances and a deeply affecting story combined to make this a lovely diversion.
Not much to say about this movie really, slightly outside the norm, family dysfunction, and the effects of failed and supposedly successful marriages... cute at times and empowering at others. Neither good nor bad.
