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 into a hot and heavy relationship - despite some potential red flags. These three pairs have suddenly found each other, and while the couplings are anything but perfect, there is a magic in the way they come to depend on one another. Because when you're alone in the world, sometimes all it takes is one person who cares about you to make all the difference. -- (C) Bodega Studios

  • 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.

  • They all run aground on questionable decisions, ranging from minor annoyance to insurmountable obstacle.
