Outside In
First screened in August 2018
Director: Lynn Shelton. Cast: Jay Duplass, Edie Falco, Kaitlyn Dever, Ben Schwartz, Louis Hobson, Aaron Blakely, Matt Malloy, Alycia Delmore, Pamela Reed. Screenplay: Lynn Shelton and Jay Duplass.

Twitter Capsule: Shelton draws super performances from Falco, Duplass, and Dever but still has low ceilings as a filmmaker and a writer.

Second Capsule: Even though the movie weakens as it goes, it's absolutely worth seeing for its leads. What Falco can do with a close-up or a nothing line...

VOR:   The ex-convict's re-entry is not a new story, especially when the movie goes out of its way to avoid tough questions and absolve him of guilt.
