I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore and Dina Win Top Sundance Prizes

By

The jury’s in! The comedy-thriller I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore has taken the top honor at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, proving victorious in a jam-packed competition slate. Serving as the directorial debut for Macon Blair, Anymore stars indie favorite Melanie Lynskey as a depressed woman who chooses to thoroughly investigate her simple home burglary in the hopes of giving her life meaning; also along for the adventure is her annoying neighbor, who’s played by Elijah Wood. (And good news if you’re intrigued by the logline, there’s already a trailer and it’s coming to Netflix next month.) Also coming out on top at the festival is Dina, which won the documentary prize for its unconventional look at a romance between two adults with differing neurological conditions. The complete list of winners can be browsed through below.
