Tuesday’s Top Trailer: Hello I Must Be Going

Welcome to a weekly feature here at Movies with Abe, Tuesday's Top Trailer. One of my favorite parts about going to see movies is the series of trailers that airs beforehand and, more often than not, the trailer is far better than the actual film. Each week, I'll be sharing a trailer I've recently seen. Please chime in with comments on what you think of the trailer and how you think the movie is going to be.

Hello I Must Be Going – Opening September 7, 2012

This romantic dramedy looks like a serene, sedated pleasure, featuring a handful of actors who have become well-known playing characters on TV. There’s something inherently strange about Melanie Lynskey, and she’s probably most recognizable to a wider audience as stalker-neighbor Rose on “Two and a Half Men.” Yet she’s definitely capable of more serious work, and this seems like a perfect part for her. She demonstrates her competence best in the final scene of the trailer, in which a friend of her young boyfriend announces that “Someone’s mom is here,” to which she cringes and runs away in response. Christopher Abbott has proven himself enormously capable of playing a loving and devoted boyfriend after his arc in the first season of “Girls,” and it’s great to see a fresh face like him getting roles like him. Jimmi Simpson, Blythe Danner, Dan Futterman, and a handful of others are also in the supporting cast, which should make this an endearing indie hit. The storyline isn’t fresh in a groundbreaking way, but that’s not a problem, since it looks like a well-told and beautifully-shot story with sweet, sincere performances.
