Kristen Bell tries to grow up in the first trailer for The Lifeguard
To her fans, Kristen Bell will always be Veronica Mars, but the talented young actress has the capability to do much more than play a teenage detective. Unfortunately for Kristen Bell, she hasn’t done a very good job of choosing roles and so her fanbase, for the most part, hasn’t expanded past fans of Mars. But I like that she’s going the indie route for her upcoming film THE LIFEGUARD and from the looks of the first trailer, it seems she’ll challenge her range and show audiences a different side of her. The film stars Kristen Bell, Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr and Joshua Harto. The Liz W. Garcia directed film hits VOD on July 30th and theaters on August 30th. Check out the first trailer below.
The official synopsis for THE LIFEGUARD: Leigh (Kristen Bell) is living a seemingly perfect life in New York. But when her career and love life both come crashing down, she flees to her suburban hometown and regresses right back into high school life. Picking up right where her teen halcyon days left off, she moves into her old room with her parents, hangs out with friends who never left town, and reclaims her high school job as a condo-complex lifeguard. But as Leigh enjoys shirking off adult life and responsibilities, and enters into an illicit affair, she begins a chain reaction that affects those closest to her.
