Bell plays a NYC reporter who gives it all up for a red one-piece and a floaty
Kristen Bell quits her New York City reporting job to become a suburban pool lifeguard in the new movie by Screen Media Films and Focus World.
The trailer sees a confused, stumbling-through-early-adulthood Leigh (Bell) go from valedictorian to big city reporter to the tall chair by the pool. No one understands the choice, so Leigh leans on someone just as confused as she is — by dating a troubled teen.
The Sundance Selection also stars Mamie Gummer, Amy Madigan and Marin Starr. "The Lifeguard" opens Aug. 30.
Here's the trailer:
