"How many of us can recall that moment when we experience happiness as a state of being, that moment when everything in our world was alright?"
Koch Media Films has released a new UK trailer for Simon Pegg's inspirational movie Hector and the Search for Happiness. This, my friends, is going to be the feel good movie of the year. Just watching this trailer made me happy. And who doesn't want to feel happy?!
The movie also has a fantastic supporting cast that includes Christopher Plummer, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgard, Toni Collette, Jean Reno, and Veronica Ferres. Here's the synopsis:
Hector (Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Pike), he feels like a fraud: he hasn't really tasted life, and yet he's offering advice to patients who are just not getting any happier. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and routine driven life. Armed with buckets of courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny results.
The film will get a limited release on September 19th, 2014, and then expand into more theaters on October 3rd.
