Intelligent comedy about a woman working in the male-dominated world of film-voiceovers. Critically praised.
If you wonder where you have heard the phrase ‘In a world’ before, just remember the last time you watched a trailer before the main feature. It is possibly the most clichéd opening phrase for any and every Sci Fi movie ever made. And you will also remember that it is always a man’s booming voice that you hear. Actor/writer/director Lake Bell has made a wonderful comedy about a vocal coach called Carol (played by Bell), who wants to be a woman in the man’s world of voice overs.
Bell’s film has had rave reviews from critics on both sides of the Atlantic, for her skill in creating an acerbic look at the world in which most working women live, with a sense of humour which removes any pomposity or sermonising. It’s a must see movie, especially after you watch the trailer.
Note: in my experience, BFF events tend to sell-out quickly.
