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

Once again, nicely done Kristen Wiig
6 June 2015 | by subxerogravitySee all my reviews

It's the perfect part for Kristen Wiig. It's a dark comedy that seems to work for her style.

She did a terrific job at bringing humor to a real serious issue at the same time being sensitive toward the seriousness of it, which I've seen her do before in stuff like the Skeleton Twins.

A mentally ill lottery winner spends her winnings to become the next Oprah on a talk show that expresses her own self absorption.

The movie is driven by Wiig with a well rounded, well known cast supporting her, that includes Linda Cardellini( who I really like)James Marsden and Joan Cusack.

It's a great Dramedy to watch.
