Movie Review: In A World...
4 out of 5 Stars
Director: Lake Bell
Starring: Lake Bell, Demetri Martin and Rob Corddry
Recommended To: Those looking for a completely unique and original off-kilter comedy.
Synopsis: Carol Solomon (Lake Bell), a vocal coach, has lived in the shadow of her father, Sam Sotto, the king of movie-trailer-voice-over artists. All of that is about to change when Carol lands a voice-over gig of her own.
Review: Lake Bell's feature directorial debut is a laugh-out-loud comedy that lampoons the film trailer industry while also managing to sneak in some serious questions about sexism in the film industry. There are also a pair of subplots that are filled with social commentary regarding relationships in the chaos of the now.
In a World... was one of the best films I saw at this years Sundance Film Festival (where it won an award for its script). Its also one of 2013s funniest and original films. If you like smart comedies you'll love In a World.
