I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is a phrase you can expect to hear a lot this weekend, as Netflix’s film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last night.
While that would ordinarily be enough to awake anyone’s interest, the other names involved are even more promising: the film marks the directorial debut of Macon Blair, a face that will be familiar to anyone who has seen Jeremy Saulnier’s Green Room or Blue Ruin. Now, the actor is making the step behind the camera, writing and shooting this drama about a nurse experiencing an existential crisis.
Melanie Lynskey stars as nursing assistant Ruth, who finds her despair replaced by a renewed sense of purpose, after her house is burgled and she decides to track down the thieves. Accompanied by her obnoxious martial-arts-enthusiast neighbor Tony (Elijah Wood), they soon find themselves dangerously out of their depth against a pack of degenerate criminals.
Given a distinctive look by DoP Larkin Seiple (Swiss Army Man), I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore also stars David Yow, Jane Levy, Devon Graye, Christine Woods, Robert Longstreet, Lee Eddy and Gary Anthony Williams.
The film screens multiple times between 19th January and 26th January in Utah, where Netflix is also making its presence felt away from the red carpet, already snapping up two indie flicks before their Sundance premiere. Keep up to date with the latest acquisitions here.
The film will be released on Netflix on 24th February 2017.
