Amy is a recently divorced pushover. Jeremy is a bold, 19 year-old actor. The two meet when Amy moves back in with her parents in the suburbs of Connecticut, and their affair inspires in Amy a new sense of self-worth.
Director Todd Louiso stressed the importance of vulnerability in the lead actor and actress, noting that Melanie Lynskey (Amy) cried while watching Christopher Abbott’s (Jeremy) audition tape. Louiso added that he worked closely with cinematographer Julie Kirkwood to draw out the differences between Amy’s life with her parents and Amy’s life with Jeremy, with Amy and Jeremy meeting in intimate, dark spaces and Amy’s parents’ house in a “kind of emotional climate control.”
“Hello I Must Be Going” stars Melanie Lynskey (“Win Win,” “Up in the Air”) and Christopher Abbott (“Girls,” “Martha Marcy May Marlene”). In theaters this August.
