Tribeca Video: 'Goodbye To All That's' Melanie Lynskey Speaks About Her Experience Living in 'Two Different Worlds'

Indiewire’s Eric Kohn got the chance to sit down with Angus MacLachlan, Paul Schneider, Melanie Lynskey and Audrey Scott of the Tribeca romance “Goodbye to All That.” The talk is part of the “Meet the Filmmaker” series and takes place at the SoHo Apple Store In New York.

“Goodbye to All That,” directed by “Junebug” screenwriter Angus MacLachlan, follows Paul Schneider as a recently divorced man who tries to reconnect with his daughter while finding love again. Sitting with MacLachlan and members of the cast, Kohn had the opportunity to ask actress Melanie Lynskey, who’s probably most known for her role in “Two and a Half Men” about working on indies. 

“It’s also a weird thing because I do feel like I live in two different worlds,” Lynskey said. She also joked about how she’s often recognized for her past role in the sitcom, leading fans to wonder if she still acts. 

Kohn also caught up with Schneider about some of the improvised facial ticks that make his character so relatable, particularly a scene involving lemon juice.

“I’m generally uncomfortable on film so it’s not a stretch,” he said.
