With gun control a hot topic among many Americans, some would say the new Netflix movie, “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” may hit too close to home. It’s a story about a fictional character named Ruth (Melanie Lynskey), who is suffering from a mental crisis. When her house is burglarized, she becomes fixated on hunting down the thieves. She’s accompanied by her annoying neighbor, who is obsessed with martial arts. Ruth soon finds herself immersed in situations, where good and evil is based on the beholder.
The film is produced by Kelly Reichardt’s “Certain Women” and Jeremy Saulnier’s “Green Room.” It was written and directed by Macon Blair (“Blue Ruin,” “Green Room,”) in his directorial debut. The film also stars David Yow, Jane Levy, Devon Graye, Christine Woods, Robert Longstreet, Lee Eddy and Gary Anthony Williams. It premieres on February 24, 2017. You must have a Netflix subscription to see it.
