A surprise from start to finish, In A World… follows Carol Solomon – a young vocal coach entering the distinctly male-dominated world of film trailer voiceovers. It’s cast is incredible, from Fred Melamed as Carol’s voiceover king father to Demetri Martin as her stuttering love interest, with standout showings from Michaela Watkins and a surprising Rob Corddry as Carol’s sister and husband. The star here though is the absurdly talented Lake Bell as writer, director, co-producer and lead actor. Her direction is subtle, easy going and perfectly in sync with her slyly intelligent screenplay, and her acting as likeable as ever. A genuinely charming directing debut.
