Oscilloscope Laboratories has acquired North American rights to Todd Louiso’s HELLO I MUST BE GOING, the comedy that had its world premiere in the U.S. Dramatic Competition at Sundance Film Festival 2012. HELLO I MUST BE GOING stars acclaimed actress Melanie Lynskey (WIN WIN, UP IN THE AIR, 2 AND A HALF MEN) in her break-out role as a recently divorced New York photographer who moves back in with her parents at their suburban Connecticut home. Initially demoralized and uncertain of her future, Amy begins an affair with a 19-year-old actor that rejuvenates her passion for life and helps her discover the kind of independence and fulfillment she suddenly realizes had been missing for years. The film co-stars Blythe Danner as Amy’s mother and newcomer Christopher Abbott as her younger but surprisingly wise love interest. It was written by Sarah Koskoff, produced by Mary Jane Skalski and Hans Ritter. Oscilloscope will release the film theatrically later this year, adding to its current theatrical slate of such acclaimed films as WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, WUTHERING HEIGHTS, 28 HOTEL ROOMS and BROOKLYN BROTHERS BEAT THE BEST.
