8 Things To Look Out For At Sundance London | 2. In A World...
2. In A World...

One of the surprise hits in a dramatic competition that was filled 50 per cent with female directors at this year's Sundance was In A World… by Lake Bell, who not only wrote and directed by also starred. Bell plays Carol, an aspiring actress who lives in the shadow of her father Sam (Fred Melamed), a legend in the world of voiceover artists. So when Carol hears that the famous words “In a world…” are being dusted off for a new blockbuster trailer, she starts to pitch for the job, coming up against all the big boys of the husky-toned voiceover world. Though it sounds like a one-joke spoof movie, In A World… is actually a sweet romantic comedy, featuring subtle turns from the likes of Demetri Martin and Rob Corddry and with a lot of self-deprecating humour from Bell, who portrays herself as a stalker with a tape recorder, chasing down unusual accents.
