Best Overlooked Indie Movies 2019

Overlooked Movies That Move the Heart

   Loneliness, separation, and sadness are everywhere in this changing world. The sight of a family and friends gathered around the fireplace is now the stuff of antique greeting cards. For many, loved ones, friends and acquaintances are divided by time and space. These days the cell phone, texts, and emails are often the only links between between humans longing for companionship.

   However, electronic circuits are no substitute for the face and heart of another. Witness one G.T. Benz, a veteran and widower who never got over the loss of his beloved wife. Now, while trying to reunite with his long-absent daughter, he finds himself assailed by strangers in a communications nightmare -- and there will be hell to pay.

This common scam has caused fear and consternation among countless thousands, and it is only one of many. Even ordinary sales pitches can be irritating, especially when some bloody stranger seems to know your personal information: “Based on your mortgage balance of $375,000, we are prepared to give you a low-interest refinance loan.” How did these SOBs get that information?
