It’s question that gets asked whenever the Powerball numbers go sky high: what would you do if you won the lottery? That query is answered in “Welcome To Me,” the latest indie from future Ghostbuster Kristen Wiig, and the first trailer has made its way online.
The story follows thirty-something, television-obsessed recluse Alice Klieg, who was diagnosed with Borderline Personality Disorder since her teens and whose life changes when she wins $86 million. What does she do with the money? She starts her own talk show, a crazy lark that turns into a success. It’s a wacky setup, but when we saw the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival, it was unsurprisingly Wiig who culled the most praise, with our review stating she’s “never been funnier. Her crass, narcissistic, capricious Alice is her greatest creation.”
“Welcome To Me” will open later this year via Alchemy. Watch below. 2/12/15 update: A new poster via Vanity Fair.
