Eleanor Oliphant has learned to survive – but not to live
Eleanor Oliphant leads a simple life. She wears the same clothes every day for work, eats the same meal every day for lunch, and every weekend buys the same two bottles of vodka to drink.
Eleanor Oliphant is happy. Nothing is missing in her carefully scheduled life. Except sometimes everything.
A simple act of kindness is about to break the walls that Eleanor has built around her. Now she has to learn how to navigate the world, which everyone else takes for granted – looking for the courage to face the dark corners she has avoided all her life.
Change can be good. Change can be bad. But surely every change is better than … okay?
