Hector and the Search for Happiness

The selections for the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival were just announced today, and one of the films premiering there will be Hector and the Search for Happniess starring Simon Pegg and we have a new trailer. The film follows a quirky psychiatrist (Pegg) who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike), he hasn’t really tasted life, and yet he’s offering advice to patients and it doesn't feel right. So Hector decides to break out of his routine life and embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering true happiness. The film will roll out to limited theaters in September in New York and Los Angeles before expanding later in the month and into October. Watch it!

New trailer for Peter Chelsom's Hector and the Search for Happiness, originally from Apple:

Hector and the Search for Happiness is directed by Peter Chelsom, who wrote the script with newcomer Tinker Lindsay and Swedish filmmaker Maria von Heland, based on Francois Lelord's book of the same name. Hector (Simon Pegg) is an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier! He’s going nowhere. One day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. especially for Hector. Relativity Media releases the film this fall on September 19th.
