Hello Again

Tom Gustafson 2017 United States 105min english

Hello Again has quite the provenance: based on an Oscar-nominated film (La Ronde) that became a musical commissioned by Lincoln Center that is now only the fourth Off-Broadway musical to be adapted to film. This episodic phantasmagoria, with trysts all across the Kinsey-scale, is a Who’s Who of stage and screen, including Martha Plimpton, Rumer Willis, T.R. Knight, Cheyenne Jackson, Glee-alum Jenna Ushkowitz, Fear the Walking Dead’s Sam Underwood, and the most awarded actress on Broadway, six-time Tony winner Audra McDonald, to name a few. Uncompromising in its depiction of the intersection between money and pleasure, love and the persistent beat of sex, the film jumps between ten impassioned couplings ranging from a soldier and lady (or is it lad?) of the night in 1901 to a Cher-like diva and her producer in 2002. With resonances spanning the ten vignettes – dates and names and phrases – the audience must stay in tune with the intricate tapestry of songs as piece by piece the characters steal a little bit more of one another’s hearts and souls in the quest for meaning. – Michael Belcher
