In a World…

Lake Bell

 

A low-budget feminist comedy set in the male dominated world of Hollywood movie trailer voice-overs, In a World… is an unexpected delight. Written, produced, directed by and starring […] Lake Bell, the film is smart, funny and affecting. Bell’s screenplay skilfully interweaves satire and family drama. She herself gives an engaging performance as the slightly hapless heroine, which rekindles memories of Catherine Keener in 1990s comedies like Walking and Talking and The Real Blonde or even of Diane Keaton’s Annie Hall.

 

Geoffrey Macnab / The Independent

 
 

In some ways a late bloomer’s coming-of-age story […] it is also, in no particular order, a show-business satire, a family drama, a feminist parable and a sweet romantic comedy. Not that any of these labels can do justice to the originality of Ms. Bell’s creative voice.
