Roadside Attractions has released the first trailer for Girl Most Likely, which used to be called Imogene, which is the name of the lead character played by Kristen Wiig.
Directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, the story follows Imogene, a failed New York playwright who is forced to make the move back home to New Jersey with her eccentric mother and younger brother (Annette Bening and Christopher Fitzgerald).
Adding further insult to injury, there's a strange man sleeping in her old bedroom (Darren Criss) and an even stranger man sleeping in her mother's bed (Matt Dillon). Through it all, Imogene eventually realizes that as part of her rebuilding process she must finally come to love and accept both her family and her Jersey roots if she's ever going to be stable enough to get the hell away from them.
Roadside picked the film up at the Toronto International Film Festival last year, but I didn't get a chance to see it while I was there and I can't remember anyone saying much about it one way or another. The one thing I can't help but think when I see this film is how little we've seen of Wiig since Bridesmaids, after which she promptly exited "Saturday Night Live". She does provide some voice work for Despicable Me 2 later this year and has a role in Anchorman: The Legend Continues, so it isn't as if she disappeared, but it seems like we just haven't seen much of her.
Girl Most Likely will hit theaters on July 19. Give the trailer a watch below.
