In Girl Most Likely, Imogene (Kristen Wiig) is finding her world crumbling apart. She had been an up-and-coming New York playwright, with a high-society boyfriend and bourgeoise aspirations, but after her boyfriend dumps her, she begins to spiral down into depression. Desperate to win him back, Imogene uses her flair for drama to stage a fake suicide, hoping that her ex will see it and feel sympathy. Instead, her stunt lands her in the care of her estranged, gambling-addict mother, Zelda (Annete Bening). Imogene must leave behind everything she has worked for and return home to the Jersey shore with her mother.
Once at home, Imogene realizes that the only way forward is to confront her past and reconcile with the family she’s never felt close with. She must reunite not just with her estranged mother, but also with her quirky brother Ralph (Christopher Fitzgerald) and her mother’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon). With their help—and that of the family’s attractive young lodger Lee (Darren Criss)—Imogene sets off on a journey of self-discovery to find her place in the world.
Written by Michelle Morgan and directed by Robert Pulcini and Shari Springer Berman, Girl Most Likely will see a limited theatrical release on July 19, 2013. This Roadside Attractions comedy/drama also stars Natasha Lyonne, June Diane Raphael, and Mickey Sumner.
