For Kristen Wiig fans, this is a must. Darker than Bridesmaids, Welcome To Me is bizarre, touching, extremely telling of our times, while also loaded with hilarious dialogue and drama.
A woman with borderline personality disorder (Kristen Wiig) wins the Mega- Millions and—much to the dismay of her parents, therapist, gay ex-husband and local TV station—uses the winnings to fund her lifelong dream of becoming the next Oprah. Also starring James Marsden, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Linda Cardellini, and Wes Bentley.
Welcome To Me is directed by Shira Piven from an original screenplay by Eliot Laurence. The dramatic comedy is produced by Will Ferrell, Kristen Wiig, Gary Sanchez, Adam McKay and Jessica Elbaum.
Salon.com describes it as “Hilarious and heartbreaking…one of the biggest movie surprises of 2015 so far.” Check out A.O. Scott’s glowing review in the New York Times here.
