On Thursday, Aug. 23 at 7:30 p.m., The Picture House will present a free sneak preview of Hello I Must Be Going, the opening film from this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
Hello I Must Be Going features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey (Win Win, Up in the Air, Two and a Half Men) 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 (Girls' Christopher Abbott) 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 subtle, moving performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey's endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic coming together at a 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.
Hello I Must Be Going is being distributed by NYC-based Oscilloscope Laboratories. Founded by Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch, Oscilloscope is a distribution and production company responsible for such films as We Need To Talk About Kevin, Meek’s Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy.
