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

3 stories about real people at real turning points woven into 1 great film

Hello Lonesome is a brilliant first film from some of the freshest new talent anywhere. The sophisticated direction by Adam Reid is met with nuanced performances by skillful actors. The indie vibe is unforced and genuine - not amateur or in-your-face. Never descending into melancholy, though the film's subject matter is for thoughtful adults, playfulness and joy permeate the atmosphere. Characters are three-dimensional, real people. They don't wear white hats or black hats. This is not Hollywood garbage. Watching these characters grow and evolve is a treat. There are no obvious answers to life's prickly dilemmas. And the film does not expect us to believe otherwise.

This is a gem of a film. You will be enriched for seeing it.
