Lonely since his wife left him and alienated from his daughter, a cantankerous voice-over artist strikes up an unlikely friendship with his regular deliveryman
Hello Lonesome is three loosely interconnected stories of exactly what the title says it is, three lonely people which is really six, three lonely pairs. One is kind of a studly guy who does voice-overs and is estranged from his daughter. One is a woman of a certain age who loves her car and misses her husband with a next door neighbor who’s divorced. And the third is a studly young man who falls in love with a woman and finds out that she is dying of cancer. The third story is by far and away the most beautifully told, maybe because it’s young people, I don’t know why it is, I think it just is felt the most strongly by not only the writer, the director, but as well as the audience. But they’re all three worth looking at and how do you deal with loneliness and what are the ramifications so give it three and a half stars.
