Hector (Simon Pegg)
is a quirky psychiatrist who has become increasingly tired of his humdrum life.
As he tells his girlfriend, Clara (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. So Hector decides to break out of his deluded and
routine driven life. 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. And so begins a larger than life adventure with riotously funny
results. Based on the world-wide best-selling novel of the same name, Hector
and the Search for Happiness is a rich, exhilarating, and hilarious tale from
director Peter Chelsom, starring Simon Pegg, Toni Collette, Rosamund Pike,
Stellan Skarsgard, Jean Reno and Christopher Plummer.
