Divorced and demoralized, Amy Minsky’s prospects look bleak when she is condemned to move back in with her parents at the age of 35. Everyone wants to help, but, as her patience level with advice is plummeting, a bold teenage boy enters her life, igniting her last bit of self-esteem. What ensues is an unconventional love story infused with all the good things Amy needs to get on in life, and that just may include great sex. Todd Louiso and screenwriter Sarah Koskoff tread new ground with a modern agenda and infectious optimism. They gently seduce us into a relationship dilemma that far exceeds age difference. The two lead actors–Melanie Lynskey and Christopher Abbott–are bursting with talent, ensuring that their situation is believable and compelling us to root for them. HELLO I MUST BE GOING is fresh and original, proving what we so easily forget: the best medicine for most of the discomforts in life is the power of human connection.
