Hector and the Search for Happiness


hectorsearchforhappinessHector (Simon Pegg), who’s bored with his perfect little dull life, tells his girlfriend (Rosamund Pike) that he needs to go away on a journey east to find out what exactly makes people happy. Much like Eat Pray Love (2010), this movie offers banal answers to difficult questions and has another well-off Westerner trudging around Asia hoping to be inspired. But unlike the Julia Roberts film, this one is done with a charming, light touch and has irresistible performances by Pegg and Pike, even though the latter would have benefited from a meatier role. Not much depth, but emotional at times… with a healthy dose of slapstick.

2014-Germany-Britain-Canada. 120 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Peter Chelsom. Novel: François Lelord. Cast: Simon Pegg (Hector), Rosamund Pike (Clara), Toni Collette (Agnes), Barry Atsma, Stellan Skarsgård, Christopher Plummer… Jean Reno.
