Watching movies on TV used to be totally substandard, but with so many TVs now at 42" or more, it can be almost as good as in the theater. For one thing, you don't have the heavy admission price, and you also have complete control of your environment. No chatty neighbors, no one texting in front of you and if you REALLY need to take a bathroom break, you can pause. However, have to be committed. Movies are meant to watch all in one sitting, with your complete attention. So turn off the lights, turn off your phone and enjoy the movie. Smile

Interview: Lake Bell talks about her new comedy 'In a World'

Submitted by melissa on August 19, 2013 - 9:25pm


Screened for Cinemit members
In Theaters Now

She's one of those actresses that you know her face, but may not know her name. Lake Bell's credits include both comedy and drama with an aptitude for voices. Her curiosity for voices began at a very young age and is what lead her to write the script for In a World, that won her the Sundance 2013 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award. As the director, writer and producer, Bell also plays the lead, Carol. As a voice coach, Carol helps prepare others but after filling in for an actor for a voiceover, she's suddenly given an opportunity to shine herself. This new development causes big waves in the small, tightly knit and male-dominated circle of actors who do voiceovers for trailers, one of which is her father, Sam (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man). Also starring in the movie are many of Bell's personal friends, all of which round out the cast and blend together without outshining each other. She wrote many roles specifically for these friends, so it's no wonder that all the performances are brilliant. Here's a breakdown of the main cast:

  • Fred Melamed - A Serious Man, Woody Allen movies: Hannah and Her Sisters, Another Woman, Crimes and Misdemeanors, Radio Days, Husbands & Wives, Hollywood Ending and Shadows and Fog
  • Demetri Martin - standup comedian, Taking Woodstock, The Rocker
  • Michaela Watkins - upcoming Afternoon Delight, upcoming Thanks for Sharing, NBC's Saturday Night Live, Wanderlust
  • Ken Marino - upcoming Bad Milo (which is HILARIOUS), Starz series Party Down, Role Models
  • Rob Corddry - upcoming Hell Baby, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, Warm Bodies, Hot Tub Time Machine
  • Nick Offerman - NBC's Parks & Recreation, We're the Millers, upcoming Somebody Up There Likes Me, upcoming Paradise
