Kristen Bell’s upcoming film “The Lifeguard” seems to be the late-blooming coming of age movie of the summer, albeit with a protagonist who’s 29. Feeling lost, Leigh (Bell) quits her big time reporter job in New York to move back to the last place she felt happy: her hometown in Connecticut. But instead of getting her feet back on the ground, she quickly backslides into high school habits and drags her friends down with her. Falling for a high school boy might be the ultimate temptation she faces as she spends the summer lifeguarding in the town she thought she was too good for.
See it August 30 in theaters and on demand.
