Hello I Must Be Going : My Review

Any of you that know me, know that indie movies are my favorites because in my opinion they have the best stories. Hello I Must Be Going is one of those stories. The film stars Melanie Lynskey (Rose from Two and A Half Men) as Amy, a recent divorcee living with her parents who spends her time sleeping in, watching old Marx Brothers movies, and basically getting under her overbearing mother's (Blythe Danner) skin and garnering sympathy from her lawyer father (John Rubenstein).

When Amy's parents decide to have a dinner party, Amy meets the son of one of her father's colleagues and things begin to turn around for our protagonist who has been basically holing herself up in her parent's home ever since her hubby left her. Amy knows that starting an affair with a 19 year old isn't the smartest thing to do, but Jeremy makes her feel good about herself which is something her mother and husband have never done.

Christopher Abbott plays Jeremy, Amy's lover who is a co star on the series Girls and he does a very good job as a young actor trying to find his way from up under his therapist mom's thumb who after seeing him convincingly play a gay man on stage is convinced her son is gay. Only after falling for Amy is he prepared to live the life he really wants to live.

This movie is funny, dramatic and a great way to spend a weekend evening if you are looking for a good movie to watch at home!
