Meet Eleanor Oliphant, a quirky character whose life of rules and routines hides a tragic past. When fate throws her into the company of Raymond, the awkward IT guy from her office, she suddenly finds that life does not have to be so lonely. You’ll cheer on Eleanor as she struggles with her past and learns how to live. I can’t think of enough words to describe how funny, sad and endearing this story is; I was sorry it had to end.
