Lionsgate has released the first trailer for Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini’s Girl Most Likely.
The film follows Imogene, a girl who wrote a hit play when she was young but that has now completely lost her way. The always funny Kirsten Wiig stars as Imogene, with support from Matt Dillon, Annette Bening, and Christopher Fitzgerald.Girl Most Likely is set for a July 19th release in the US but we’re still waiting on the Irish date.
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 (Annette 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 (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.
