Michael Stone, an author of books on the subject of customer service, struggles to connect with people. One night, while on a routine business trip, he meets Lisa, a stranger with a unique voice.

"Leave it to writer, director, and professional expectation-defier Charlie Kaufman to make existential angst so completely delightful."
- Sarah Kurchak, Consequence of Sound
"Anomalisa might be bizarre, surreal and far out, but it always feels paradoxically real, grounded and deeply true."
- John Bleasdale, CineVue
"This is a wonderfully odd consideration of those questions about love, pain, solitude and human connection we all ask; its emotional power creeps out from under the subtle humor and leaves a subcutaneous imprint that lingers long after the movie is over."
- David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter
"There’s something strange and dreamlike and delicate and beautiful about Anomalisa, an animated film for grown-ups that takes a long while to make its point, but does so with a dark brilliance."
- Kyle Smith, New York Post
"Charlie Kaufman teams with stop-motion wiz Duke Johnson to bring his conceptual stageplay to life, resulting in another uniquely cerebral yet satisfying bout of self-analysis."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Charlie Kaufman is back – with a wistful, resonant film, a bracing, wry, honest dose of cinematic melancholy."
- Lee Marshall, Screen International
"With spot-on vocal performances from Thewlis, Leigh and Tom Noonan, the film is nothing less than mesmerizing — and must viewing for serious cinephiles."
- Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Singular and stunning ..."
- Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"Anomalisa’s existence is a minor miracle on multiple levels, from the Kickstarter campaign that funded it to the oh-so-delicate way the film creeps up on you, transitioning from a low-key dark night of the soul into something warm, human and surprisingly tender."
- Peter Debruge, Variety
"Filtered through Kaufman's searching mind and soulful brilliance, the result is a masterpiece."
- Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"It's Chekhovian screwball, a perfect little tale of love (or thereabouts) in bloom among the weeds of an ordinary life. It feels like a classic already."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"Anomalisa is an extraordinarily wise film about the reasons we turn to other people and the enormous difficulty of doing so."
- Drew McWeeny, HitFix
