Disillusioned with the tedium of his existence, psychiatrist Hector (Simon Pegg) confesses to his girlfriend (Rosamund Pike) that he feels he is a fraud for dispensing recommendations to patients who never seem to improve or get any happier. He considers breaking out of his lackluster routine. Summoning up some courage, Hector gives his starved curiosity free rein and embarks on an international quest to find the right formula to bring him joy and vitality.
“Caught a screening. Hard to put your finger on, it’s not exactly a comedy or romance or drama but it’s got all those elements in it yet they all balance perfectly. Really had me. Well, I laughed a lot, so maybe it is a comedy. Everybody’s funny in it. Simon Pegg is the best I’ve ever seen him. Always loved him, never exactly thought of him as a dramatic actor but he sure lays it down here. Wonderful surprise, I hope he does more quality moves like this, he’s too talented to waste. Most worthwhile film I’ve seen all year. Just incredibly satisfying. No spoilers here so I’ll just say it’s a really great. Going to take my friends when it comes around again. Funny, smart and a terrific ending. Why is that so hard to do these days?” -User Review
