I LOVED Hector and the Search for Happiness.
But that doesn’t necessarily mean you will.
This movie will evoke a very specific, personal response from each and every theatergoer.
When Hector, a London psychologist, feels he is no longer helping his patients, he embarks on a trip around the world to research happiness.
His girlfriend supports his quest and even gives him a journal to record his findings.
A few of these findings really resonated with me, leaving me tearful in the theater and very thoughtful long after I left. It even inspired a two-hour phone call.
Simon Pegg is well-known for his zombie comedies, but Hector is a big step, I believe, toward bigger and more exciting roles. He hits it out of the park.
It is rare to not only enjoy a movie but also feel it has so much to say about your own life and experiences. I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m still talking about this one for weeks to come.
