Hello I Must Be Going

Amy is newly divorced and held up at her parents’ house while she licks her wounds. And her wounds go deep. During a dinner party with her parents, she hooks up with the guests’ son, Jeremy, who’s only 19.

The relationship with Jeremy is not the answer to her problems, but it’s a bandaid solution. They have fun until the reality of the situation catches up with everyone. Their relationship cannot possibly work, but at least Amy has learnt how to be loved.

This is quite a good flick – there is romance, and there is very subtle humour, and it’s not a typical rom com. It has a more gentle pace and intimate sensibility. Melanie Lynskey is adorable as Amy and the whole movie pivots around her pain and happiness. Worth a watch.
