I’m always amazed at how long a film will stay stagnate on my Netflix list. This one sat on it for I’m thinking around six months or so. What’s even more amazing are the pre conceived notions about the film that I get from the synopsis and the cover art. I’m usually more surprised than anything else, and that can be good or bad. I’m an optimist for the most part, and am almost always glad that I went ahead and took care of business and watched it. With the directors’ names, I »

In A World…
Written and directed by Lake Bell
In A World… tells the story of Carol Solomon (Lake Bell), a struggling young voice coach who lives in the shadows of her acknowledged “king of voiceovers” father, Sam Soto (Fred Melamed). Sam kicks Carol out of his house so he can live alone with his new girlfriend, the 30-year-old Jamie (Alexandra Holden). Meanwhile, a new film series, The Amazon Games, plans to revive the classic “In a world where…” style of film trailers (made famous by the late Don Lafontaine). Soto bows out to give his heir a shot, but after Carol provides a temp track, the executive producer of the film is intrigued, and suddenly Carol finds herself in a world where daughter is pitted against father.

The directorial debut of Lake Bell looks at the underappreciated world of voice over work and boils it down to a hilarious little microcosm all of its own. Bell takes the lead role herself as the daughter of one of the best in the industry, and although currently working as a vocal coach she is soon climbing the ladder to the big time of movie trailer voice-over work.
Bell’s script is sharp, »
