Storyline

Alice suffers from borderline personality disorder, but she has what she needs in life. She has an apartment, she has a best friend, and she has tapes of every Oprah Winfrey show. And now, after winning the lottery, she also has 83 million dollars. What she doesn't have is an outlet for the whole world to know who she really is. The TV station cut her off when she tried turning her lottery announcement into a frank discussion of her sexual experiences, but with her money in hand, she's off to LA to convince two struggling TV producer brothers to produce her own TV show. Whatever it costs, she's going to do it. From swan entrances to dog neutering, she is going to introduce the world to Alice. But is the world ready for Alice? Written by Anne Campbell

Trivia

In the beginning, right before Alice (Kristen Wiig ) puts the VHS recording of The Oprah Winfrey Show (1986) in the VCR, the camera scans her collection of videos. You can see a VHS labeled "SNL," an Easter Egg referencing her career on Saturday Night Live (1975). See more »

Refreshingly intelligent, insightful, and luminous
14 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie is pure genius. It provides insight into the depths of the human psyche and the narcissism that results from a broken trust with the world at large. Rarely does a story capture the capacity of truth to create an audience in a refreshing and unique manner. I think this movie is highly under-rated. "Welcome to Me" offers an opportunity for evolution through shocking and outrageous honesty. And, it does so in a manner tinged with humor and love. Kristin Wiig, along with the rest of this perfect cast, could not have done a better job. It was written, acted, and produced flawlessly. It is hard to be new and daring in today's world, and they accomplished it! One of the best films I've ever seen.
