‘I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore’ Trailer: Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood Become Suburban Vigilantes
Sometimes life gets so irritating that we all just want to lose our freaking minds and go on a rampage to blow off some steam. In Netflix’s trailer for I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, Melanie Lynskey’s Ruth gets so fed up with all the garbage that happens to her — someone neglects to remove their dog’s business from her front yard,a truck in front of her blows clouds of exhaust into the air, her house gets burgled — that she decides to take matters into her own hands.
She finds a kindred spirit in her neighbor Tony (Elijah Wood), and together they embark on a quest to retrieve her grandmother’s silver spoon from a bunch of criminals and soon find themselves in a mess of lies, murder, and a lot of face-kicking. The movie looks like a ton of fun, and, you know, it’s pretty cool that nowadays we’re seeing a lot more films about women kicking butt and fighting back against a world that doesn’t seem to care about them. And if the trailer hasn’t quite sold you, the fact that it’s from the producers of both Certain Women and Green Room ought to.
Here’s the official synopsis:
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.
I Don’t Feel a Home in This World Anymore hits Netflix February 24.
