It Seems Rather Odd
3 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A middle aged woman who has always lived with her mother moves to a small town to become a manicurist at a barber shop. There is a man there who the locals call "Odd." He continually tries to die. That is, he walks in front of vehicles. He lies down in a parking space. He takes his hat off and puts it on his chest. Every day, the sheriff and a couple of locals lift him up and put him on the sidewalk. He seems to be a kind man but he thinks he is truly dead. The manicurist, played by Academy Award winner Louise Fletcher, takes an interest in him. She starts by rescuing a cat he is about to drown. Eventually, these two lonely souls start to spend time together until one day he pops the question. This is one of the weirdest of the stories in this series.
