Chris Wilkinson on

In a World

Released 2013
Distributor Roadside Attractions

A movie about movie trailers? Count us in. More specifically, director/writer Lake Bell’s 2013 farce is about the cutthroat world of movie trailer narrators. Potentially a thin premise, the talented Bell, who also stars, spins some comedy gold with the help of a terrific cast of comedian/actors including Demetri Martin and Rob Corddry. The low budget film tripled its cost at the box office and won critical appraisal across the board.
