Netflix has unveiled the trailers for two of its upcoming original films, including ‘I don’t feel at home in this world anymore.’ and ‘Deidra & Laney Rob a Train,’ ahead of their world premieres at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival. The two movies are set to launch on the streaming service later this year, following their premieres at this month’s festival.
One of the most highly anticipated films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, ‘I don’t feel at home in this world anymore.’ will open the U.S. Dramatic competition tonight at the Eccles Theater. The crime thriller stars Melanie Lynskey and Elijah Wood, and was written and helmed by first-time feature film director, Macon Blair.
Netflix has released the following synopsis for ‘I don’t feel at home in this world anymore,’ which will launch on the streaming network on February 24:
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. The film was produced by XYZ Films and filmscience.
‘Deidra & Laney Rob a Train’ is set to premiere at the NEXT Festival this Monday, January 23, at the Egyptian Theater. The crime dramedy was written by Shelby Farrell and directed by Sydney Freeland. The movie features up-and-coming actresses, Ashleigh Murray and Rachel Crow, in the title roles.
Netflix has released the following synopsis for ‘Deidra & Laney Rob a Train,’ which will launch on the streaming network on March 17:
Life is moving fast for whip-smart high school senior Deidra (Ashleigh Murray) and her younger sister Laney (Rachel Crow). Graduation looms, their part-time dad is a full-time schemer, and adolescent embarrassments arrive daily – just like the train that rambles noisily through their backyard. But things take a turn for the worse when their mother Marigold (Danielle Nicolet) is thrown in jail for a minor offense after succumbing to the pressure of single parenting. To help her struggling family, Deidra hatches a plan to start robbing trains. Things go off without a hitch, until a railroad detective (Tim Blake Nelson) starts sniffing around.
Directed by Sydney Freeland and written by Shelby Farrell, the Netflix original film ‘Deidra & Laney Rob a Train’ stars Ashleigh Murray, Rachel Crow, Tim Blake Nelson, Danielle Nicolet, Sasheer Zamata, David Sullivan, Missi Pyle, Arturo Castro, Brooke Markham and Sharon Lawrence. Susan Cartsonis and Nick Moceri serve as producers. Randy Kiyan, Ian Bricke, and Funa Maduka serve as executive producers.
