Independent film is quite unique around the world. Smaller distribution companies such as A24 have paved the way for other small distributors to release features that eventually contend for many awards — including Best Picture. In fact, 2017’s winner, Moonlight, was a famously cheap movie — the cheapest in the history of Academy Awards to win the most prestigious award, in fact. The film industry is allowing such films to thrive with this new model, and Wildcard Distribution’s Michael Inside is a great example of such a scenario.
Michael Inside went on to dominate the Irish Film and Television Awards, getting nominated in categories such as Best Film, Best Director, Best Script, and Best Actor in a Leading Role and would even go on to win for Best Film. The praise cemented the film as one to watch out for, leading to a theatrical release this year.
The following review will be spoiler free.

Can’t wait to see this when it becomes available. The direction of the movie seems more to my liking compare to what I usually see in movies based in, or about prisons itself. It comes off like it’s about leaving an lasting impact on the viewer than simply getting them absorb in a single moment. I look forward to it whenever I get chance to see it, especially the depiction of it story.
I’m with you on that one! I wish more movies would go after that aesthetic. It’s one of the reasons I can’t wait to see You Were Never Really Here!
Sounds awesome – where can I watch it?
It should be coming to streaming very soon!
