The 2017 drama film Outside In follows the story of an ex-convict named Chris (Jay Duplass) who struggles to reintegrate into society following his release from prison. He spent twenty years in prison after being convicted of a crime he didn't commit. While in prison, he forms a close bond with his former high school teacher, Carol (Edie Falco), who believes he is innocent and works tirelessly to get him released.

When Chris is finally released, he returns to his small hometown in Washington, which he left 20 years ago. He moves in with his brother Ted (Ben Schwartz) and his wife Trish (Alycia Delmore). Chris finds it hard to adjust to being back in the world as he has been in jail since high school, while everyone else has moved on with their lives.

Chris and Carol reconnect, and their relationship becomes more intense as they spend more time together. Carol is married and has a daughter, Hildy (Kaitlyn Dever), but her marriage is falling apart, and she finds solace in Chris's company. Chris, on the other hand, is dealing with a lot of unresolved emotions from his time in prison and feels out of place in the town he once knew so well.

As Chris tries to find his place in the world once again, he starts to see things in the community that disturb him. He feels that the justice system failed him, and it is evident throughout the movie as he sees other people being subjected to the same injustices. He starts to advocate for change and tries to make a difference in the lives of others, while also trying to come to terms with his own struggles.

The movie deals with themes of rehabilitation, the justice system, and relationships. The story is a deeply emotional tale of love and loss. The relationship between Carol and Chris is complex, with both characters seeking something from the other; Carol finds a sense of purpose in championing Chris's case, while he seeks validation for his long-standing belief that he was wrongly imprisoned.

The performances are outstanding; Edie Falco's portrayal of Carol is nuanced and emotive. Jay Duplass also gives an excellent performance as Chris; we can see the internal struggle he faces as he deals with the trauma of his past.

Outside In is a well-made, thought-provoking movie with strong performances and compelling themes. It is a poignant tale of love, loss, and the challenges of re-integrating into society after a period of incarceration. The movie explores the possibility of redemption and hope, and encourages us to look at the justice system through a more critical lens. Outside In is a must-see for anyone who is interested in movies that explore important social issues with heart and depth.
