Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, Hello I Must Be Going features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey (Win Win, Up in the Air, Two and a Half Men) in her breakout role as Amy, a recent divorcée who seeks refuge in the suburban Connecticut home of her parents (Blythe Danner and John Rubinstein). Demoralized and uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19-year-old actor (Girls' Christopher Abbott) that jumpstarts her passion for life and helps her discover an independence and sense of purpose that she has missed for years. Coupling Danner's subtle, moving performance as a frustrated empty nester with Lynskey's endearing and nuanced depiction of both the comic and tragic coming together at a crossroads, Hello I Must Be Going is a modern, unconventional love story infused with sex, humor, and emotional honesty - everything Amy will need to get on in life.

There aren't many plot details about Hello I Must Be Going available just yet, but we do know that Scott will play a man contemplating suicide who revisits his hometown to settle some scores. It’s bothersome that the word “comedy” isn’t used here at all, given Scott and Riggle’s involvement, but hopefully the subject matter allows for some dark humor sprinkles.
