Movie Info

Hello Lonesome is a story about people...actually, three stories about people. Regular people. They're charming and flawed, and they're all trying their best, just like the rest of us. There's a voiceover artist who lives and works in his underwear from his self-made mountain utopia and his opera loving postal deliveryman. There's a sassy suburban widow in her seventies and her vaguely peculiar but quite witty next-door neighbor. There's an adorable young couple that meets online and jumps right

It's a bit scattered, and each of its three stories turns on a bit of a melodrama. It's not perfect. But it does work.

The seeming randomness of the assorted human interactions in "Hello Lonesome" gradually becomes illuminating and just a little bit profound.

The parts are ultimately greater than the whole, but Adam Reid's offbeat debut suggests a talent worth watching.

Manages the considerable feat of creating six fully human characters who are quirky enough to transcend the stereotypes found in a typical indie film.

Though it can occasionally seem like an indie-dramedy answer to The Grudge, structured to pack in the maximum moments of whimsical connection instead of supernatural kills, the film does find something deeper in its treatment of Smith and Lloyd.

The promising film works but ends too abruptly without having a chance to be more impactful or profound.

Hello Lonesome isn't really that much of a movie, but it has something that a number of more polished pictures in the same vein don't: human decency. Sadly, that's noteworthy.

Congrats to rookie Reid for crafting such an endlessly-amusing screenplay, for finding the right cast to execute that vision, and for the rest of just the right ingredients to serve a satisfying, cinematic stew.

Marginally engrossing and witty, yet somewhat contrived and lacking in depth.

A tiny independent film (budget: $50,000) that aims high and nearly gets there..Reid does a lot with a little - and has crafted a small beauty of a film with his first try.

Reid wears a lot of hats in making his first feature film and can wear them proudly to see the result.
