Eleanor Oliphant is completely fine, thank you very much. She is quite settled and safe in her routine, keeping herself to herself, moving from work to home and back, with 2 bottles of vodka on the weekend. Yet her carefully constructed protective walls are weakened when 1) she wins tickets to a concert by a local band, and 2) the new IT guy at work has to fix her computer. A wonderfully charming and funny voyage of self-discovery and finding joy in life.
