Hello I Must Be Going

Rated R 95 minutes 2012

Distraught over her recent divorce, a layabout in her mid-30s (Melanie Lynskey) seeks refuge in the suburban Connecticut home of her wealthy parents (Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein), only to find that no one is interested in her problems. For reasons that are never convincingly explained, the 19-year-old son (Christopher Abbott) of a family friend falls in love with her, and she has an affair with him. Sarah Koskoff's screenplay is flagrantly duplicitous, introducing the heroine as a self-pitying sloth, then trying to pass her off as likable by making nearly all the other characters drips, snobs, or unfeeling scolds. Todd Louiso (Love Liza) directed in the detached, generically arty style of cable TV drama.
