As confirmed by her "House of Lies" role, Kristen Bell often goes for comedy, but she plays it much more seriously in this tale of a reporter disenchanted with her job and her life.
She decides to revisit an earlier, happier time by reclaiming her former position as a lifeguard, but things get complicated when she becomes involved with someone half her age (David Lambert). Writer-director Liz W. Garcia's film also features Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr and Amy Madigan. *** (R: AS, N, P) (Also on On Demand)
