College film student Benjamin Glass (played by writer-director Aaron Fisher) has it all: ADHD, OCD, borderline personality. And he’s also bipolar. But Glass is more than his diagnoses – he prefers the term “recklessly extravagant” – and he’s determined to prove his genius. When a misunderstanding threatens to expel him from college, Glass pushes back; he plans on recreating the incident on video, with the help of a moonlighting sex worker (Ellen Toland) to clear his name. But how will he raise the money for the film, when his parents dismiss the scheme as another manic episode?
Benjamin Glass (Aaron Fisher) is a transfer student to a new college. He’s also bipolar or, as he likes to call it, “recklessly extravagant.” It means he brings a past history, and it winds up getting him saddled with a hearing to consider his expulsion after two purported suicide attempts. It was all a big misunderstanding.
In the wake of these events, he meets the enigmatic beauty Emma (Ellen Toland) as he awkwardly try to drown his sorrows at a strip club. They meet outside when he gets in a fight with some jerks accosting her. From such auspicious beginnings, they enter the big leagues when the pledge of a film project ups the ante of a movie within a movie. She signs on to act in the pet project he plans to use to plead his innocence at the hearing. It’ll be great.
What sets in is relational ambiguity even as Ben continues to drive his parents up the wall and terrorizes his therapist. Inside the Rain is an indie with an acerbic edge, but it’s not totally derailed by these qualities. At its core is a big dorky heart not unlike its protagonist. Where the bark is worse than the bite and the affections run deeper than the volatile showings of animosity.
Likewise, Ben’s frenetic, filterless hurricane of bluntness overwhelm the sloppy character tropes around him including the therapist (a spunky Rosie Perez) who is a thinly-veiled sounding board, useful for continually comic confrontations. Everyone has their own set of charms. There’s the key. They have it in spades.
