“Outside In” Co-Written by and Starring Jay Duplass

I like most everything that Jay Duplass touches (e.g. Transparent) and "Outside In" (on Netflix) is not an exception. Duplass co-wrote the screenplay with Director Lynn Shelton and stars as Chris, a less-than-criminal ex-convict. Per usual, Duplass plays a sensitive, vulnerable role and, per usual, it's pleasurable to spend time with him. Similarly, Edie Falco co-stars with Duplass and is also sensitive, vulnerable, and a pleasure to watch. More than this, the subject matter is interesting and the writing is both thoughtful and engaging. "Outside In" is a legitimately good film.
