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, ...

Did You Know?


Kris Booth raised the money to make this film by putting a "Tip Jar" on his desk at work, and asking people coming through to put any pocket change they had into it. The first person put in 15 cents. At the end of the year, they had raised $42,000, enough to get the film produced. Telefilm Canada fronted the completion money once they had seen a cut of the film. See more »

Terrible Movie save for Kristen Booth
6 March 2010 | by t-garrett10See all my reviews

I should have known better than to see a film that was being self-released. There's a reason no companies took a chance releasing this film. It's just not good. It's actually pretty terrible.

Though Kristen Booth is an engaging, interesting rising star, this movie is proof that that's just not enough to carry a film. If DeNiro and Pacino couldn't save Righteous Kill, what chance does Kirsten have.

I see some positive reviews for this film on the IMDb site. It's nice to know that the crew and parents of the director think this is a good movie, unfortunately, that doesn't make it so.

The whole thing goes wrong at the script phase and then only gets compounded by incompetent film making. The pacing, tone and overall aesthetic are so severally lacking, it's a wonder the director has even watched, let alone, made a movie before.

At Home by Myself with You is one of the most painful cinema going experiences I've ever had (and not just matching it up against studio films – I see a lot of other indie films as well).

Kristen Booth is a talented actress, but she may need to find a better agent if she is getting mixed up with bad movies like this one.

3 out of 10, and she get's all 3 of those stares.
