Welcome to Me

Welcome to Me 550“A strange and often startlingly inspired media/mental-illness comedy … breezily bonkers”  –Variety

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. Shira Pivan’s film stars Wes Bentley, James Marsden, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Linda Cardellini. (U.S., 2015, 105m, digital, Alchemy)
