Fresh off her performance in the recently released Sundance darling “I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore,” Melanie Lynskey has a new film coming out, and judging from the trailer, there’s probably going to be a lot less brutal violence in this one. “Little Boxes” is a dramedy that tells the story of an interracial family from New York that moves to the mundane, overwhelmingly white suburb of Rome, Washington. As you may suspect, things don’t really go well for the family.
The film is executive produced by “True Detective” helmer Cary Fukunaga and directed by Rob Meyer, who is best known for his indie film, “A Birder’s Guide to Everything.” Lynskey stars alongside Nelsan Ellis, Armani Jackson, and Janeane Garofalo as Lynskey’s coworker who may or may not be a bad influence.
The film premiered at last year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will open in theaters April 14th.
