Michael Stone is a depressed customer service guru who struggles to connect with others, until one day he meets a stranger – an extraordinary stranger called Lisa – who could be the cure for his negative outlook on life. Anomalisa is a thought-provoking and tender animation about the often crushing dilemmas and challenges brought by midlife crisis in the modern world. The most human film of the year and it doesn’t star a single human.
