A teacher experiences a series of mishaps after discovering he has magical powers.
Kill Me Three Times
A mercurial assassin (Simon Pegg) discovers he isn’t the only person trying to kill the siren (Alice Braga) of a sun-drenched surfing town.
In this darkly comedic thriller, the hitman finds himself unraveling three tales of mayhem, murder, blackmail and revenge.
“I think we all mistake certain things for happiness,” explains the actor. “I think we mistake comfort for happiness and we mistake pleasure for happiness, and entertainment for happiness, when really these are just things we use as proxies for our happiness.
“We use them to cheer us up or try and achieve brief happiness, when really happiness is something much more profound and long lasting and exists within us.” — Simon Pegg
The uplifting story follows Hector (Simon Pegg) and his quest to find out whether happiness truly exists. It starts with Hector feeling trapped with his mundane daily routine and his neurotic girlfriend Clara (Rosamund Pike), so he decides to break away from his sheltered London life and go on a global quest to find out whether happiness truly exists.
Will he end up happy? We suspect so, but we’ll have to wait until August to find out.
Hector and the Search for Happiness
Pegg plays Hector, an eccentric yet irresistible London psychiatrist in crisis: his patients are just not getting any happier! He’s going nowhere. Then one day, armed with buckets of courage and an almost child-like curiosity, Hector breaks out of his sheltered vacuum of a life into a global quest to find out if happiness exists. More importantly, if it exists for Hector. And so begins a colorful, exotic, dangerous and hysterical journey.
