Sundance 2012 chose Hello, I Must Be Going as one of its opening night films, putting it in the company of numerous films that have gone on to become critical and commercial darlings. The likes of In Bruges (2008), Happy Endings (2004) and Project Nim (2011), just to name a few. Needless to say, you don’t get chosen by Sundance to open the festival if your film is terrible. So that bodes well for this story of a recently divorced woman (Melanie Lynskey) and her rediscovery of her sense of purpose via her affair with a 19-year old boy. Directed by Todd Louiso (yes, the one from High Fidelity), Hello, I Must Be Going has a lot of great buzz coming out of the festival toward its release in September.
The theatrical trailer, found below, features a great quote from our own Kate Erbland. She’s got a way with words.
Hello, I Must Be Going will open limited on September 7, 2012.[iTunes Trailers]
