Kristen Wiig Gets Her Own Show in Official 'Welcome to Me' Trailer

February 20, 2015

Welcome to Me

During the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, we highlighted what seemed to be the first trailer for the comedy Welcome to Me starring Kristen Wiig. However, that turned out to be a sales trailer for the film while it was still looking for distribution, and it was taken down. But now the real, official trailer for the film has surfaced as the film has been set to arrive in limited theaters in May. In the film Wiig plays a woman with borderline personality disorder who manages to get her own show on a local TV network after she wins the lottery jackpot. It looks like a fun, quirky showcase for Wiig but there's a great supporting cast too. Watch!

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Shira Piven's Welcome to Me direct from YouTube:

Welcome to Me

Welcome to Me

Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig) suffers from borderline personality disorder, and though she manages it fairly well, past tumult has left a broken marriage and strained familial relationships in its wake. But suddenly, Alice wins the state lottery, eschews her medication and therapy, moves into a casino, and creates her own talk show about herself. As it becomes a surprise hit, Alice realizes that viewers identify with her but doesn't recognize her own hunger for fame may just reflect a deeper need to be heard. James Marsden, Wes Bentley and more also star in Welcome to Me, directed by Shira Piven, which arrives in limited theaters May 1st.

I'll go see anything with Kristen Wiig in it. Anything.

as the time passes, I am more and more close to that too. I saw enough movies with her and must admit: they don't disappoint ...

craziness in its own right. In a world full of doubtful values. How can you not love it?
