Hello I Must Be Going (2012)

Director: Todd Louiso

Writer: Sarah Koskoff

Composer: Laura Veirs

Starring: Melanie Lynskey, Blythe Danner, John Rubinstein, Sara Chase, Caniel Eric Gold, Tori Feinstein, Dave T. Koenig

More info: IMDb

Tagline: Meet Amy Minsky. She's just getting over her divorce.

Plot: Circumstances force a young divorcée to move back in with her parents in suburban Connecticut, where an affair with a younger guy rejuvenates her passion for life.

My rating:  6.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Holy smokes, I didn't recognize Melanie Lynskey at all and I had just a few days ago watched HEAVENLY CREATURES (1994) for the second time.  Wow.  This romantic comedy is light on the funny.  It's more drama, really. It's pleasant enough to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon with but I didn't find it anything but.  I liked the ending which is positive but not in a cheap Hollywood kind of way.  Amy's (Lynskey) arc worked out well and it was nice to see the shift from her positive relationship to her father move to her mother.  The Oscilloscope DVD comes with some extras including an interview with the writer and director (11 minutes), an interview with Lynskey (8 minutes), the theatrical trailer (anamorphic widescreen) and trailer for 4 Oscilloscope films.
