Imogene

She has a lot to live up to. And a few things to live down.


Imogene
Known in the USA as ''Girl Most Likely'', this is about a once-promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. She is heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, and uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. When her attempt backfires she's put into the custody of her estranged gambling addict mother. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so-called friends, she must finally deal with her misfit family and a cute young lodger, who together help her sort out her place in the world.

Tomatometer quote iconLargely witless and disappointingly dull, Girl Most Likely strands the gifted Kristen Wiig in a blandly hollow foray into scattershot sitcom territory.
