First clip from Hector and the Search for Happiness

The feel-good comedy of the summer, HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS is the uplifting story of one man's global quest to find out whether happiness truly exists. Featuring stunning performances from an all-star cast including Simon Pegg, Rosamund Pike, Toni Collette, Christopher Plummer, Stellan Skarsgard and Jean Reno, the hilarious, heart-warming film is set for release in cinemas nationwide from 15th August 2014, through Koch Media.

Hector (Simon Pegg - Shaun of the Dead, The Worlds End, Paul) is an eccentric yet loveable psychiatrist who finds himself at a crossroads in life; his patients just arenít getting any happier and his life is going nowhere. Feeling trapped between his mundane daily routine and his neurotic girlfriend, Clara (Rosamund Pike - Made in Dagenham, Jack Reacher), Hector decides to break away from his sheltered London life and go on a global quest to find out whether happiness truly exists - and more importantly, whether it exists for Hector. Along the way he meets friends old and new, learning some valuable lessons on his journey of self discovery that proves equal parts colourful, dangerous, exotic and hilarious.

Directed by Peter Chelsom (Funny Bones, Hear My Song) and featuring a career best performance from Simon Pegg as youíve never seen him before, HECTOR AND THE SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS is an inspirational, feel-good adventure that will leave you smiling.
