The world is full of assholes. At best, everyone’s only looking out for themselves, and at worst, everybody’s actively trying to hurt others. That’s how things are in the real world, but that’s also the basic setup for I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore, a new Netflix original from director Macon Blair. The movie is about a nursing assistant (Melanie Lynskey) who gets fed up with the world’s descent into bullshit after someone breaks into her house, with her and a martial-arts-enthusiast neighbor (played by Elijah Wood) teaming up to embark on a quest for vengeance. The film will be Blair’s directorial debut, and if the little glimpses of violence in the trailer above seem particularly dramatic, that could be because Blair has frequently collaborated with Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier. That guy knows a thing or two about violence.
I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore will premiere on Netflix on February 24.
