Our take

Weaving elements of a ghost story into the restlessness of urban life, Hong Sung-eun’s atmospheric debut maps out the emotional safety nets relied upon by city dwellers. Probing the line between solitude and loneliness, Aloners seeks tenderness beyond the monotony of solo lunches and TV dinners.
