Seattle Director Lynn Shelton Talks About Her New Film, Outside In, Which Screens at SIFF Starting Today

Outside In is the new feature-length film by Seattle director, Lynn Shelton. It premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017, is opening in the Emerald City on April 6, and had its US premiere at SXSW on March 10. It's about a convicted felon reentering society—reentering his former hometown—in Snohomish County, Washington. But the movie, which stars Edie Falco as Carol (the school teacher) and Jay Duplass as Chris (the ex-con), is also about the fleeting and changing nature of human connections, about generation gaps, and the difficulty of parsing passion from love.
