The comedy sees Kristen Wiig front and centre – something we don’t get to see often enough at all. And ahead of its most welcome arrival next month, Lionsgate have released a new UK trailer to get you in the mood.
Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Darren Criss and Matt Dillon headline in Girl Most Likely, a hilarious comedy about Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence.
Heavily in denial about being dumped by her high society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate meltdown as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she’s put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore.
Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so- called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss), who together help Imogene find her place in the world.
Wiig is joined by an excellent cast, starring alongside Annette Bening, Darren Criss, Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald, Natasha Lyonne, Mickey Sumner, and Bob Balaban.
The Oscar-nominated duo Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini (American Splendor) are behind the camera, with Michelle Morgan (Middle of Nowhere) penning the script, and Wiig herself serving as executive producer.
Girl Most Likely will be released in the UK on 27th September. Here’s the new trailer to whet your appetite.
