Storyline

Lonely since his wife left him and alienated from his daughter, a cantankerous voice-over artist strikes up an unlikely friendship with his regular deliveryman. Many suburbs away, an elderly widow loses her license to drive and turns to her wry younger neighbor for nostalgic cuddles and comfort. Meanwhile, a young urban sports fanatic meets a girl online and unexpectedly falls in love, though the trials the couple endure prove even more unexpected. Adam Reid's enchanting, compassionate debut weaves together the worlds of six lonely individuals as they negotiate the age-old process of giving and receiving love. It isn't easy, and it never happens the way they expect it, but for these isolated souls, there's an oddball magic in the way they make connections they never imagined. Written by Jonathan Wysocki / LAFF

This is a delightful film dealing with 3 different groups of people gently and imaginatively dealing with the reality of the aloneness of the human experience.
24 February 2012 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

This is a lovely and intriguing film filled with humanity, humor, pathos and most importantly whimsy. The story unfolds in such a gentle, sensitive yet matter-of-fact way that the viewer immediately consents to be taken along as part of a journey cushioned with the innate feeling that real, though maybe quiet, magic is possible, even available in real life to real people. The actors all do a fine job, particularly Lynn Cohen, James Urbaniak, and Kamel Boutros. First time director, Adam Reid brings to the screen a palpable empathy for the characters and has the light touch that a more experienced director might have developed. I look forward to future work from him.
