Today we have a UK trailer for "Hector and the Search for Happiness," starring Simon Pegg, Christopher Plummer, Rosamund Pike, Stellan Skarsgard, Toni Collette, Jean Reno and Veronica Ferres. Check it out below.
Plot: Hector (Pegg) is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his boring 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 routine driven life. Armed with courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness.
The new movie is set to hit select theaters on September 19th. It will then expand on October 3rd.
"Armed with courage and child-like curiosity, he embarks on a global quest in hopes of uncovering the elusive secret formula for true happiness."
It's called contentment, you greedy, hedonistic American man-child imbecile.
Some apt quotes from people smarter than I:
“He who is not contented with what he has, would not be contented with what he would like to have.”
“We are not rich by what we possess but by what we can do without.”
― Immanuel Kant
“Wealth consists not in having great possessions, but in having few wants.”
“Contentment is natural wealth, luxury is artificial poverty.”
“If you have a garden and a library, you have everything you need."
“Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: this is the ideal life.”
― Mark Twain
“A quiet secluded life in the country, with the possibility of being useful to people to whom it is easy to do good, and who are not accustomed to have it done to them; then work which one hopes may be of some use; then rest, nature, books, music, love for one's neighbor — such is my idea of happiness.”
― Leo Tolstoy
“The greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circ*mstances.”
― Martha Washington
You mean, Pegg, right? If so, I disagree. He was never funny. Never. Everything that made him funny was thanks to the comedic equivalent of beer goggles. He was funny because you saw his antics through Wright's humorous writing. Pegg himself is an obnoxious, annoying little man with a horrifyingly screeching voice, and that anyone would think he would make a good Scotty for Star Trek is merely more proof the world has gone utterly mad.
