Hello, I Must Be Going (SIFF 2012)

30-something divorcee Amy has moved back home with her parents as she tries to ignore the fact that life is continuing forward for everyone around her as she spends her days without direction or ambition. She’s under pressure from her parents to “get it together” and make a plan for herself, but she can’t seem to pull herself out of her funk. Then she meets Jeremy, the 19-year-old son of her father’s business contact, and their instant chemistry gives her a reason to venture out of the house and start engaging in life again. Questions arise about the limits on their relationship: Are there any? Should there be?

Hello, I Must Be Going explores the questions of finding meaning in life and learning to stand on your own two feet and make decisions for yourself. Laura Veirs provides a stunning soundtrack, and the audience is able to connect with the characters and care about their decisions, leading to just the right mix of drama and comedy.
