Kristen Bell has a lot of growing up to do as Leigh in the first trailer for The Lifeguard. After her career and love life crash down upon her in New York City, Leigh decides to move back home with her parents, reverting back to her immature behavior and even taking the lifeguard job she had back in high school. Take a look at the first footage from director Liz Garcia's comedy, also starring Martin Starr, Mamie Gummer, and Amy Madigan. The Lifeguard debuts on VOD formats July 30 before arriving in theaters on August 30.
Leigh (Kristen Bell) is almost 30, and 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 teenage life and behavior. She moves into her old room with her parents, hangs around with friends who never left town, and reclaims her high school job as a condo-complex lifeguard. But as Leigh enjoys shirking adult life and responsibilities and enters into an illicit affair, she begins a chain reaction that affects those closest to her. With an all-star cast that also includes Martin Starr (Party Down, Knocked Up), Mamie Gummer (Side Effects) and Oscar nominee Amy Madigan, it's a journey that's both hilarious and heartfelt. Presented by Screen Media Films & Focus World, the alternative distribution of Focus Features.
