Hello Lonesome


Each of the three intercut stories in Hello Lonesome---all dealing with characters trying to overcome solitude---begins promisingly enough. Eventually, though, they all run aground on questionable decisions, ranging from minor annoyance to insurmountable obstacle. A mild touch of sentimentality in the best of these, about a potential May-December romance between a widow and a neighbor, is largely forgivable, but a midpoint revelation elsewhere that sends a tale of youthful amour into dour dawdling leaves you with a depressingly morbid aftertaste.
