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

Kristen Wiig has been doing really well in drama so far
20 June 2015 | by Lee EisenbergSee all my reviews

If you only know that "Welcome to Me" stars Kristen Wiig and is produced by Will Ferrell, the only conclusion would be that it's a slapstick comedy. But this movie is nothing like that. Wiig plays a woman suffering from borderline personality disorder who gets her own TV show. And on this show, she talks about whatever's on her mind.

I've seen Wiig in a couple of dramas recently and I've liked all of them. "Welcome to Me" is more of a comedy-drama, with the comedy resulting from Wiig's character's awkwardness. One of Wiig's scenes was particularly bold, but the fact that she was willing to do it shows what a good actress she is.

I hope that Wiig continues with these kinds of movies, although I do also like her straightforward comedies). In fact, I wish that there were more of these movies. It's a really good one. It won't be for everyone, but I recommend it.

Also starring James Marsden (JFK in "The Butler"), Linda Cardellini (Cassie in "Brokeback Mountain"), Wes Bentley (Ricky in "American Beauty"), Jennifer Jason Leigh, Alan Tudyk (the Duke of Weselton in "Frozen"), Tim Robbins and Joan Cusack.
