Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, the funny and poignant 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 (Christopher Abbott, who plays Charlie on HBO's "Girls") 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 subtly riveting performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey's endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic avenues of an existential 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. Written by Sarah Koskoff and directed by Todd Louiso (Love Liza). Official Web Site
