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

Amazing - watch this one! Can stream it on Netflix now.
30 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There is no way this deserves 5 stars. It is far better than other titles that are rated a great deal higher here. The few external reviews I've had a chance to read seem to agree, it is an excellent film.

I cannot sing the praises of Hello Lonesome highly enough. Everything about it was almost perfection. Great writing, direction, cinematography and not least, superb casting and acting! It amazed me that all the actors were unknown to me, yet all were more than competent and also talented.

Every story was believable and each one elicited emotions and feelings in me. I could relate to every character.

Honestly, I enjoyed this as much or more as anything I have seen in my many years of seeing movies. It is now on Netflix streaming, which is how I saw it.

I only buy movies that I think are exceptional. This is one that I will be purchasing (for myself and a couple to give as gifts).

See it - I'd be surprised if you didn't love it.
