Poster for I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore

Melanie Lynskey finds a new sense of purpose after being burgled in actor Macon Blair's (Green Room) writing-directing debut. Co-stars Elijah Wood. More

"Ruth (Lynskey), a depressed nursing assistant, returns from work to find dog poo on her lawn and her house burgled. Losing faith in the police (and possibly humanity as a whole), Ruth starts her own investigation, joining forces with her erratic neighbour – and dog poo culprit – Tony (Wood). Upon locating her stolen laptop, they trace it back to a consignment store, leading them to a gang of degenerate criminals and a dangerous, bizarre underworld where they’re way out of their depth." (Toronto International Film Festival)

Worth seeing for its interest in eccentric but realistic people, in particular Ruth, who's played with great intelligence and exactness by Lynskey.

What's delightful about I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore ... is how consistently the film challenges our worst assumptions about humanity even as it confirms them.

A kind of domestic version of Mel Gibson's Payback played for laughs...
