In a World...

Lake Bell, USA 2013, 93’

This light and understated comedy exposes the epicenter of a world few knew existed: the community of voice trainers and voiceover actors responsible for the booming voices that  thunder out over movie trailers. Carol is an aspiring voice-over actress struggling to make it in a man’s profession – one that is ruled by her father. In her directorial debut, Lake Bell adroitly exploits the comedic potential latent in a hermetic universe of sound, where everything is both as charming and awkward as  a first date. From among the affairs  of a dysfunctional family arises the theme of a mature feminist struggle to find one’s voice (!) while eschewing whining in favor of a commitment to fulfilling one’s dreams.
