HATSFHPosterLongPT“We should concern ourselves not so much with the pursuit of happiness, but with the happiness of the pursuit.”

Simon Pegg (Star Trek Into Darkness, The World’s End) stars in the new film, Hector and the Search for Happiness, now in limited release, going wide on October 3rd. In the film, Pegg plays Hector,  a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life. As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (Gone Girl’s Rosamund 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. Hector decides to break out of his routine and go on an adventure. 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. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector and the Search for Happiness is decribed as  “a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale.”

The film was directed by Peter Chelsom and written by Chelsom, Tinker Lindsay Maria von Helandfrom, based on the book of the same name by Francois Lelord. Also appearing in the film are Toni Collette (The Way, Way Back), Stellan Skarsgård (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Jean Reno (The DiVinici Code)  and Academy Award Winner Christopher Plummer (Beginners). It’s being released by Relativity Media.
