What’s it like to have a movie play at the Sundance Film Festival?

It’s an insight not a lot of people have, but now Melanie Lynskey has lived to tell the tale. The actress is known for playing the murderous teen in Heavenly Creatures, the nervous newlywed sister in Up in the Air, and the Charlie Sheen stalker (and eventual murderer) Rose on Two and a Half Men. But, last week, she was met with acclaim after opening the festival with the sexy comedy-drama Hello I Must Be Going, and has been riding the waves of the world’s biggest indie festival ever since.

The movie is about a 35-year-0ld woman who falls in love with a handsome 19-year-old. Oooh, scandal? “A thing I have liked hearing is that people think it’s really sexy,” she says, “which is really nice, because that’s what we were going for.”

How does she say goodbye to Sundance 2012? A tough hombre like her walks into Park City’s historic No Name Saloon and does a shot of Bushmills with us, of course. Watch after the jump!
