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 porn actress (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? Inside the Rain is a wincingly funny rom-com-drama, anchored by off-kilter performances by co-stars Fisher and Toland. The colorful ensemble cast includes Rosie Perez as a tough love shrink, Eric Roberts as an unhinged film producer, and Catherine Curtin and Paul Schulze as the long-suffering parents. The ultimate underdog film and proof that if you believe in yourself, anything is possible.

30 July 2020 | by westsideschlSee all my reviews

A fair amount of screen time centered on a male college student's interest in sex & romance which shouldn't be surprising. As to his mental state perhaps a little spectrum disorder; a little bipolar; a little of a bunch of other issues, but none too egregious. Then too, we don't know how much his medications were moderating it all. I liked the parental love & support. The counseling sessions seemed movie dramatic.
