Another day, another trailer for something coming to Netflix soon that looks great. Just this month we’ve already seen trailers for original movies like Girlfriend’s Day, The Discovery, and iBoy, and new series Santa Clarita Diet, which all look worth a peek. And the streaming giant isn’t slowing down either, after making a number of acquisitions at the Sundance Film Festival happening right now out in Park City, Utah.
The trailer you can watch below is for a movie titled I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore. It stars Melanie Lynskey as a woman pushed too far when she’s robbed, and Elijah Wood as her neighbor who helps track down the thieves. The movie is the directorial debut of Macon Blair, an actor best known for playing the lead in the intense 2013 thrilled Blue Ruin.
Here’s a more detailed description of the movie:
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.
Written and directed by Macon Blair (“Blue Ruin,” “Green Room,”) in his directorial debut, with a distinctive look courtesy of cinematographer Larkin Seiple (“Swiss Army Man,” “Cop Car”), the film also stars David Yow, Jane Levy, Devon Graye, Christine Woods, Robert Longstreet, Lee Eddy and Gary Anthony Williams.
I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore is part of next month’s new arrivals to Netflix.
