What happens when a young woman with Borderline Personality Disorder wins the lottery? In the case of Alice Klieg (Kristen Wiig), she quits her psychiatric meds and buys her own talk show. Inspired by the immortal Oprah, she broadcasts her dirty laundry as both a form of exhibitionism and a platform to share her peculiar views on everything from nutrition to relationships to neutering pets.
The new poster for Welcome to Me has arrived, featuring star Kristen Wiig front and center as she symbolically transformers herself into a swan. This woman is going to be on TV whether you like it or not! And she might just break the Neilsen ratings record books. Vanity Fair has our first look at this one-sheet, which is quite a bit different from the first posters featuring Kristen Wiig as a dog walker, in her life before winning the lottery.
In Welcome to Me, Kristen Wiig is taking on a role that is both heavily dramatic and comedic, allowing the actress to show off all sides of her immense talent as a performer. How will these $86 million lottery winnings help her discover her true self? We'll have to wait until this summer to find out, when the movie opens in theaters everywhere. In the meantime, admire the fine umbrella being a multimillionaire can afford (we've also included some of the earlier posters for a comparison):
