'Hello I Must Be Going' brings sex, humor and love to big screen in Unity
UNITY - On Saturday, March 9, Unity College and the Maine international Film Festival will present a MIFF in the Morning screening of Hello I Must Be Going at the Unity College Center for the Performing Arts. The screening starts at 2 p.m. and is free and open to the public.
Selected as the opening night film for Sundance 2012, Hello I Must Be Going features acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey 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 (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 story of love and redemption—infused with sex, humor, and emotional honesty—giving Amy everything she will need to get on with her life.
The Maine International Film Festival's MIFF in the Morning series is a winter film series featuring a diverse selection of American independent and international documentary and narrative films.
Free admission is sponsored by the Unity College Development Office.
The UCCPA is located at 42 Depot Street in downtown Unity. For more information, visit uccpa.unity.edu or call 948-7469.
