Following the break-up with and imminent divorce from her entertainment lawyer husband David, thirty-something Amy moves back in with her upper middle class parents Ruth and Stan Minsky in Westport, Connecticut. David asked for the divorce following an affair he had with who Amy considered a friend. Knowledge of the affair and David asking for the divorce came out of left field for Amy, who thought she had the perfect marriage. In her surprise and shock about David, she left David basically with the clothes on her back, and has not asked for anything in the divorce settlement. Three months later, she is still in a depressed state, not leaving the house and not knowing what to do with her life. She has no real job experience, has only a liberal arts degree, and abandoned her Master's degree studies in Photography to marry David. She believes her parents have mixed feelings about her return. Although they have both welcomed her back, she believes Ruth is critical not so much about what ... Written by
Wonderful film a thumbs up for a lady who rediscovers passion and an intimate life before going out her own way! And a nice treat seeing Melanie Lynskey.
"Hello I Must Be Going" is one of those little independent movies that you must see it's heartfelt and it shows how one little lady can struggle and after once again finding passion set back out on her own. I must also say that Melanie Lynskey really shined here she's an underrated actress she has great sex appeal and range give her more roles! Anyway Melanie("Two and One Half Men")is Amy a recent divorcée who after bouts of depression seeks comfort and shelter by moving back in with her cultured and well to do parents(Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein)in their suburban Connecticut home. The only hope for Amy comes in an unexpected gift just like the way it happens in many lives. After meeting family friends she begins an affair with their son named Jeremy(Chris Abbott)a caught in the cookie jar 19 year old actor. And this rediscovery of passion and intimacy starts life all over for Amy again she's a new lady! Overall this film has it's highs and lows as you watch Amy go thru tragic and funny crossroads of her life as even though she's caught up in a magical love story this girl has reached a point in her life of raw emotional honesty so she can go her own way. Again overall nice feel good film that shows life's a journey with many up's and down's as a rediscovery of passion can show you who you are. Plus it was a nice treat seeing Melanie at work.
