ORIGIN STORY: Melanie Lynskey makes sexy splash in 'Hello I Must Be Going'

The girl of Hollywood’s dreams has been right in front of it for a long time.

But like the clichéd end to some silly rom-com, she’s just been overlooked as “the best friend” all this time.

Shy, sweet, and hilarious, Melanie Lynskey made her debut in 1994 as the scowling teenage murderess opposite Kate Winslet in Peter Jackson’s Heavenly Creatures, and since then has become a familiar face in movies and TV as the step-sister (Ever After), wacky neighbor (TV’s Two and a Half Men), doe-eyed housewife (The Informant!) teary bride-to-be (Up in the Air), and messed up mom (Win-Win). She’s the type of character actor who makes you snap your fingers and say, “Oh yeah … that girl.”

In the new bittersweet and funny love story Hello I Must Be Going, her name is no longer on the tip of your tongue – it’s above the title.

'Hello I Must Be Going' trailer: Melanie Lynskey falls in love with a younger man

In the Sundance hit — and one of EW’s picks for best alternative summer movies — Hello I Must Be Going, Melanie Lynskey plays a 30-something woman who, after her divorce, moves back home and gets involved in an ill-advised relationship with a 19-year-old (played by Christopher Abbott, Charlie on Girls).

Making things more complicated: Their families know each other, and their dads are business associates. Watch the trailer to realize that you don’t know awkward until you’re referred to as a “Mom” by your new guy’s  friends.

Is there anything more wonderful than happy naked people?

The smile on Melanie Lynskey’s face should answer that question.

Anyway, it’s all she’s wearing in this new poster for the Sundance hit Hello I Must Be Going, about a down-on-her-luck 30-something divorcee who moves back in with her parents and basically turns into a teenager again — which includes falling in love with one.
