"Hello I Must Be Going" is at once an intriguing character study and a refreshingly offbeat romance.

Succeeds almost entirely on the strength of Melanie Lynskey's heartfelt and humorous performance in the lead role.

Landon Palmer
Film School Rejects

...a sincerely personal take on its subject matter, opting for three-dimensional leads and earned pathos over quirky character traits, cynical humor, or an invasively stylized visual approach.

Boston Globe

The movie's sharp-tongued and softhearted, a Sundance kind of film that mostly sidesteps generic Sundanceyness.

G. Allen Johnson
San Francisco Chronicle

Sarah Koskoff's play-it-safe script and Louiso's heavy-handed direction combine to kill the potential of "Hello I Must Be Going."

Lynskey imbues the self-doubting Amy with such lightness that she manages to make neediness appealing.

Ben Sachs
Chicago Reader

Sarah Koskoff's screenplay is flagrantly duplicitous, introducing the heroine as a self-pitying sloth, then trying to pass her off as likable by making nearly all the other characters drips, snobs, or unfeeling scolds.

Moira MacDonald
Seattle Times

Lynskey lets us see, from deep within Amy's fog, an instinctual desire to please, and a sense of innocent wonderment at how she could possibly have gotten into such a mess.

A fine and funny film balanced perfectly between heartbreak and uplift, anchored by a rich, superlative turn from Melanie Lynskey.
