Three stories of unlikely relationships come together in this independent comedy drama from writer and director Adam Reid. Bill Soap (Harry Chase) does commercial voice-overs for a living, but has been stuck in a funk since his wife left him and his daughter stopped speaking to him. One of the only people who still sees him on a regular basis is Omar (Kamel Boutros), the deliver driver who stops by his house nearly every day, and Bill reaches out to him for friendship. Eleanor (Lynn Cohen) is an elderly widow who has lost her license to drive. Eleanor turns to her neighbor Gary (James Urbaniak) for help running her errands, but as they grow closer she looks to him for more intimate comfort. And Gordon (Nate Smith) meets Debby (Sabrina Lloyd) through an on-line dating site and immediately falls in love. However, while Gordon is thoroughly committed to the relationship, they have to navigate more than their share of pitfalls along the way. Hello Lonesome marked the first on-screen role for noted voice actor Harry Chase; the film won the prize for Best Ensemble Performance at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
