The Orchard is getting in on Outside In.
The company has acquired worldwide rights to the drama starring Jay Duplass and Edie Falco. The film will premiere next month at the Toronto International Film Festival, and The Orchard is planning to debut it in theaters and digitally in early 2018. Afterward, Netflix will release the movie on its worldwide streaming platform.
Outside In centers on Carol, a high school teacher, and Chris, her ex-student, as they explore a relationship after his release from a 20-year prison sentence. While Chris navigates his re-entry into the world, Carol works to rebuild her family and reconnect with her teenage daughter. Ben Schwartz and Kaitlyn Dever are also featured in the cast.
Outside In continues the relationship between Duplass Brothers Productions and The Orchard. Previous collaborations include The Overnight, Take Me, Blue Jay, 6 Years, Manson Family Vacation, Rainbow Time and Creep.
Jay Duplass is currently starring on the Amazon series Transparent and producing the HBO anthology series Room 104. He is also part of Greg Kinnear's upcoming dramedy The Philosophy of Phil. Falco next stars in NBC's anthology series Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders and Netflix's ensemble dramedy The Land of Steady Habits. The two actors recently both appeared in Amazon's indie Landline.
Director Lynn Shelton (Laggies) co-wrote the script with Duplass. It was shot on location in Washington state and was also produced by Mel Eslyn and Lacey Leavitt. The deal was negotiated with The Orchard by ICM Partners on behalf of the filmmakers.
