Melanie Lynskey

This week, Teo and Rachel talk to the fabulous Melanie Lynskey. Melanie's in the new movie "I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore", an eccentric crime-thriller-cum-dark-existential-comedy (just watch it) that won Sundance's Grand Jury Prize and premiered on Netflix last week. We talk to Melanie about the film, why she's such a consistently calming presence in indie cinema, how she sometimes feels "invisible" as a woman over 30 in Hollywood, and how she keeps herself from disappearing into her consistently morose characters. Later, we play a game with Melanie called "Trivia About Yourself," in which we quiz her about her 20-plus years of incredible movies.
