Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for directors Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s indie comedy Girl Most Likely. The film stars Kristen Wiig as a once-promising New York playwright trying to navigate through life after her career fizzles.
Kristen Wiig as the lead in a comedy? They already have my money. The former SNL star has 6 films scheduled to hit theaters in the next 6 months. I can’t wait to see how her transition from SNL icon to Hollywood lady goes.
The supporting cast includes Annette Bening, Darren Criss, Natasha Lyonne and Matt Dillon.
Imogene is a failed New York playwright awkwardly navigating the transition from Next Big Thing to Last Year’s News. After both her career and relationship hit the skids, she’s forced to make the humiliating move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother. Adding further insult to injury, there’s a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother’s bed. Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she’s ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.
