I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore. (2017)

Director: Macon Blair. Cast: Melanie Lynskey, Elijah Wood. 93 min. Comedy/Crime.

Comically-easy setting to empathize: middle-aged female wonders why every single living creature around her is a jerk. So she decides to fix one such occasion, and with the help of a weird associate, sets out to deliver vigilante justice on someone who robbed her home. This derails the story off its original concept, into a violent realm that's not quite funny anymore. In the meantime, I'm amazed (and admire) how out of the Winslet-Lynskey duo first recognized in Peter Jackson's Heavenly Creatures (1994), one become Titanic-level famous, while the other to this day successfully continues to brave the indie scene.
