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, ...

Money better spent
15 October 2009 | by mark_b_70See all my reviews

I really, really wanted to like this movie. The story behind it is inspiring. Indie director raises money through pocket change to make his dream feature. It's a feel good story. Unfortunately, the film is just not good. It's actually pretty bad.

It's decently photographed and the acting is competent (for what the cast had to work with) but where it really falls down is the script. Pedantic doesn't even begin to describe it. It's formulaic writing at it's absolute worst. From bad dialogue choices to boring characters, this film was several rewrites away from being ready for filming.

I think there's a lesson in this film, and it's a sad one. If you have to beg for change to make a movie -- you should make sure the movie you are making is worth it. Well many in Canada bemoan the public funding agencies, they do serve their purpose in that they are a litmus test for whether or not a project has any appeal. At Home By Myself with You simply does not.
