The Lifeguard

Now Playing Synopsis: A one-time valedictorian on the cusp of 30 returns home to live with her parents and finds the decision having some unexpected repercussions in this drama from first-time writer/director Liz W. Garcia. Leigh (Kristen Bell) is a 29-year-old Associated Press reporter living in the Big Apple, who suddenly experiences massive pangs of dissatisfaction. She returns home to the suburbs of Connecticut, and settles back into her childhood room. Before long, Leigh has reclaimed her old job as a lifeguard, and rekindled her friendships with the old pals she once left behind. Leigh's unforeseen regression threatens to be her undoing, however, when she enters into a foolhardy affair with a local teenage boy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Kristen Bell, Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, Alex Shaffer, Amy Madigan Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
