Poll: Loneliest Movie Characters

"Loneliness has followed them their whole life, everywhere. In bars, in cars, sidewalks, stores, everywhere. There's no escape. They're God's lonely people."

I exclude superhero, non-human (animated, vampire, dracula, monster, etc) and sole-survivor / trapped in a lone situation like Castaway or Life of Pi
