Storyline

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 Huggo

great movie
15 October 2013 | by scotny34See all my reviews

Just watched, Hello, I must be going, and was enchanted. The story captured my attention and held it throughout without a single bomb or car explosion. It is a subtle plot, often told, of a rediscovery of the true meaning of life and of love, but in the hands of this cast, a freshly- told tale. Like so many others, I am sure, I am a fan of Melanie Lynskey, and this picture does nothing to dim my admiration, but I was reaffirmed in my admiration of Blythe Danner and I am a new convert to Christopher Abbott. I wish that the film had done better at the Sundance Film Festival than just being nominated for the Grand Jury Prize as it deserves a much broader audience and viewing. This is the picture you want to watch when you want or need an affirmation that while life does not give you everything without a struggle, it can reward you with great simple things if you allow it to do so. It is a feel-good movie not dripping in saccharine, but instead gives the bitter-sweet of a good dark chocolate.
