Anna is stuck: she's approaching 30 and living like a hermit in her mum's garden shed, avoiding fully living her life due to the fact that she is crippled by the loss of her twin brother. She spends her days making videos using her thumbs as actors - thumbs that bicker about things like whether Yogi Bear is a moral or existential nihilist. A week before her birthday her Mum serves her an ultimatum - she needs to move out of the shed, and move on with her life. However, when her school friend comes to visit, Anna's self-imposed isolation becomes impossible to maintain. Soon she is entangled with a troubled eight year old boy obsessed with Westerns, and the local estate agent whose awkward interpersonal skills continually undermine his attempts to seduce her.Written by

Right! I want you to survey the scene. Something is wrong. Things don't add up. Look at the people. How are they behavin'? What are they hidin'? How do they give themselves away?

Well. I must say I have fallen in love with this movie. It's one of those beautifully crafted little gems that have heart and depth and just make you smile and also cry a little bit. Sure, there are other (more ambitious) movies out there tackling the same theme - going through life, losing and finding and coping and surviving and not being alone - but I just love the simplicity and kind of raw honesty of this one.
Anyway, to sum it up - characters are quirky and lovable, dialogues smart and funny and I can only recommend this movie if you are in a mood for something slow yet uplifting.
