After finding her home has been broken into, "Togetherness" star Melanie Lynskey quickly spirals down a dark path of retribution in the trailer for the offbeat Netflix movie "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore."
Actor/producer Macon Blair, who is perhaps best known for starring in filmmaker Jeremy Saulnier's acclaimed thrillers "Green Room" and "Blue Ruin," makes his directorial debut with this darkly comic vigilante thriller, which also stars Elijah Wood, Jane Levy (Don't Breathe), Christine Woods (The Walking Dead), and David Yow (Southbound).
The film, which is set to premiere this week at Sundance but will officially be released on Netflix beginning February 24th, sees Lynskey as a fed-up nursing assistant who is so furious about her house being burglarized that she finds herself teaming up with her weird-ass neighbor (Wood). The unlikely crime-fighting duo is off to catch the culprit themselves. But things take a very dark turn when they get caught in a situation that suddenly goes from bad to dangerous.
From the producers of Kelly Reichardt's "Certain Women" and Jeremy Saulnier's "Green Room" comes the story of Ruth (Melanie Lynskey), a nursing assistant suffering through a crisis of existential despair. But when her house is burglarized, Ruth discovers a renewed sense of purpose in tracking 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.
