Watch: Kristen Bell Goes Poolside in Trailer for Indie 'The Lifeguard'
"You have your whole life ahead of you. You have no idea how lucky you are." The films from the 2013 Sundance Film Festival just keep hitting theaters, and now it's time for The Lifeguard to get the ball rolling. Kristen Bell leads this indie about an almost-30-year-old woman who has lost herself after her career and relationship crumble, forcing her to move back home from New York City. Once there, a job as a lifeguard at the local pool and a break from responsibility provide a break, but she can't avoid growing up forever. Ben Pearson didn't enjoy this one much at Sundance earlier this year, but maybe it's worth a watch?
Here's the first trailer for Liz W. Garcia's The Lifeguard, originally from Apple:
Leigh (Kristen Bell) is almost 30, and when her career and love life both come crashing down, she flees to her suburban hometown and regresses right back into teenage life and behavior. She moves into her old room with her parents, hangs around with friends who never left town, and reclaims her high school job as a condo-complex lifeguard. But as Leigh enjoys shirking adult life and responsibilities and enters into an illicit affair, she begins a chain reaction that affects those closest to her. Martin Starr, Mamie Gummer and Amy Madigan, also star in The Lifeguard, written/directed by Liz W. Garcia, and arriving August 30th.

So this film is about female midlife crisis... rental maybe... at best.

Or, it's about Statutory Rape. Which is nice if you're into spending time in prison. At least they probably won't make a movie about that guy who died screwing a horse. Except they probably will. Blech.

I saw this movie. The trailer doesn't do it justice, that's for damn sure. I actually found myself engrossed in the movie when I watched it. 3 1/2 out of 4 stars in my opinion.
