What is Girl Most Likely
? It’s the comedy movie formerly known as Imogene
and starring Kristen Wiig, Annette Bening, Matt Dillon, Christopher Fitzgerald and Darren Criss (Glee
). And why are we talking about? Because Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have picked it up and will be releasing it in theaters on July 19, 2013. Michelle Morgan wrote the script and Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman (Cinema Verite
) directed the comedy which premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2012.
Kristen Wiig stars as 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 society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she’s put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (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 (Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.
