While Veronica Mars fans still have a year to wait for that movie, they can still get their quick Kristen Bell fix with the first poster for The Lifeguard. The actress stars as Leigh, a young woman who moves back to her hometown after her life falls apart in New York. At almost 30 years of age, she reclaims her high school job as a condominium lifeguard, regressing back to her high school days and skirting responsibilities. Growing up is optional in this dramatic comedy directed by Liz Garcia, debuting on VOD formats July 30 before arriving in theaters August 30.
Leigh, almost 30, is living a seemingly perfect life in New York. But when her career and love life both come crashing down, she flees to her suburban hometown and regresses right back into high school life. Picking up right where her teen halcyon days left off, she moves into her old room with her parents, hangs out with friends who never left town, and reclaims her high school job as a condo-complex lifeguard. But as Leigh enjoys shirking off adult life and responsibilities, and enters into an illicit affair, she begins a chain reaction that affects those closest to her.
