I’ve been a Lake Bell fan for a while, but after watching her directorial debut In A World… (imdb | rotten tomatoes) said fandom has gone up a few notches. It’s a great little entrée of a film, sweet and medium light along the same lines as Drinking Buddies, but more witty and less heavy.
Also, one gets the sense that this whole project sprung out of an idea she had for a film about wanting to help girls who sound like sexy babies. And I would watch the hell out of that film.
