Harvey Lippe' works as a janitor at a small ski resort in the peculiar Northern community of WhiteFox. Standing three feet four inches and abandoned at an orphanage as a child, he has grown up angry and miserable. Now in his early twenties he lives like a hermit in a small trailer, his only friend being Lucas Harold, the town drug dealer. Lucas attended the orphanage for several months before being adopted and subsequently moved to several fosters homes. He is rough around the edges, but has a big heart and a perspective few people give home credit for. Every evening Harvey walks the same route from his trailer, several miles through farmer's fields and hillside forest to get to work. But on this day he has a run in with a stray husky, which he at first thinks is a wolf. She follows him and that night he reluctantly allows her inside his trailer.

A Unexpected Stand Out
28 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

The film "An Insignificant Harvey" is a thought provoking twisted tale, with a positive look on a unconventional story. This film was as "indie" as I was hoping, and surprisingly had quite a lot of comedic undertones. Found myself laughing quite a lot. The acting was impeccable. I am taking my view on "little people" actors as a wonderful change as a leading man in a film. I am captivated when the vulnerabilities of people are so well understood and portrayed, this film did just that. With out making everything "perfect" in the end it was real in the end. I have seen this film 3 times and enjoyed it even more every time I watched it. If you are sick of the cookie cutter"romantic comedies" and over emotional "Dear John" movies then this is right up your ally something totally different and surprising. This film made the top of my list.
