The 21st century sees a lot of lonely men out there, growing old without friends or family, whether by choice or by accident. Our lonely men could be up in space as in Pantheon, or at the end of the world as in Mr Torquay’s Holiday, or just going about daily life without personal interactions. Maybe they want to be left alone for personal reasons because of a secretive job as in Mr Invisible. We meet all kinds of men in this powerful selection.
