In a World (2013 Lake Bell)

Writ/Dir/Prod/Star Lake Bell plays Carol, the lone woman in the voiceover business, competing against her dad (Fred Melamed, Larry’s wife’s new boyfriend in A Serious Man) and her one-night-stand (Ken Marino) to voice the trailers for a new fantasy trilogy. Since that’s clearly not enough plot for a whole movie, she also has a sister who decides to leave her husband, and one of the recording studio guys (Demetri Martin) likes Carol. Cute enough movie with lots of good comedians in the cast, and amusing clips of the fake fantasy trilogy, a sort of Mad Max dystopia starring Cameron Diaz.

I also showed The World’s End to Katy, which she did not enjoy, then I rewatched it a couple times with commentary tracks.
