Recalling Sunrise, this dazzling, visually expressive masterpiece set against a vibrant New York City tells a simple yet powerful story of two lonely people in the big city who meet and enjoy the thrills of an amusement park, only to lose each other in the crowd after spending a great day together. One of the great films made during Hollywood’s transitional period from silent movies to talkies, Lonesome features two scenes with dialogue. Directed by Paul Fejos.
