Storyline

Romy Scott has a plethora of phobias stemming from a loved one dying associated with each one of those items. In order of occurrence, they are fear of lobsters, fear of opening boxes, fear of kissing and fear of storms. She is convinced by assertions by her mother when she was a child that her overarching fear, something that ties all four incidents together, should be being outside. As such, she has not left her apartment in six years, not even to step into the common hallway. She is able to live as a shut-in thanks to technology, and an official and unofficial support network: her best friend Erin, a lawyer and chronic dater, she who will require her boyfriend at any given time to provide Romy his professional in-house service, and whose friends will provide the occasional non-kissing date/sexual encounter at her apartment; her building's maintenance man, Waylon, who always seems to be hitting on her in a different persona each time; Sam, the UPS delivery guy; and Bessie Abernathy, ...

Worth Every Nickel, Dime and Penny!!
19 October 2009 | by audreywinnieSee all my reviews

I saw this at VIFF - a friend told me about it and luckily they had added another screening so I was able to see it. And I loved it! I can't believe they made such a wonderful film for so little money. It just goes to prove that where there's a will, there's a way! I thought the acting was superb. Kristin Booth played the phobias so genuinely and somehow managed to balance a lightness with this serious subject, and then could make me laugh out loud. And I can't remember when a romantic comedy has done that - most of the time they lean heavily toward romantic and forget about the comedy part and this film has both. And Aaron Abrams was fantastic, too. I'm pretty sure every woman who sees this film will fall just a little bit in love with him. Had this film been made with more money it probably would have lost the thing that makes it so special - its heart. I hope this film makes it to theatres or at least DVD - I want to see it again and next time I'm bringing all my girlfriends!
