Chet (Dustin Coffey) suffers from agoraphobia, which is why he has lived with his parents for all his life - but now they move, and when Chet claims he's not ready to move, they just leave him behind. Thus he finds himself forced to take on a sublet, basically someone who's ok to run errands for him in return for a rather low rent. And Valentina's (Chanel Marriott) seems perfect, she's young, cute, likeable ... and when she tries to seduce him, she scares the hell out of him. So Chet takes in Maggie (Linda Burzynski) instead, a woman with a troubled story of her own: She's a war veteran, her husband's (Ed Aristone) in prison, and she's a bit of an alcoholic. But at least to a degree, Chet sees herself in her stories, and in turn, taking care of him makes Maggie forget about her husband. Somehow they grow closer and closer, but it's never clear if their special relationship won't crash into a wall before long ...

Lori Petty plays Maggie's best friend, a barmaid - who more than once almost breaks due to Maggie's alcohol-fueled shenanigans.

 

Fear, Love, and Agoraphobia is a very touching film - and ironically for the reason that it doesn't try too hard but rather presents everything in an as-is way, not begging the audience for sympathy for its broken characters but portraying them as human beings - fallible yes, but not more than you and me. And thanks to strong central performances and a directorial effort that avoids spectacle and instead gives the performances room to breathe, this turns out to be a really strong movie.

Worth a look for sure!
