In this hilarious and idiosyncratic comedy, Carol (Lake Bell, No Strings Attached) is an underachieving voice coach living in the shadow of her egotistical father Sam (Fred Melamed, A Serious Man), the undisputed king of the voice-over industry. When Sam kicks her out, Carol lands her first voice-over job with the help of charming sound engineer Louis (Demetri Martin, “Important things with Demetri Martin”). As romantic sparks begin to fly, Carol finds herself facing a momentous decision when continued job offers put her in head to head competition with her dad. The engaging supporting cast includes Rob Corddry, Michaela Watkins and Ken Marino with cameos by Eva Longoria and Geena Davis.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that In a World... is an indie comedy about the world of Hollywood voiceover artists. Actress Lake Bell (Over Her Dead Body, TV's Childrens Hospital) makes her feature writing and directing debut, with some empowering messages for women to go along with her witty humor. Language is perhaps the biggest issue, with fairly frequent use of strong words ("f--k," "s--t," "c--t," etc.). Though no nudity or sex is actually shown, it's strongly implied, and innuendo/sexual references are heavy. The main character sleeps with a man she meets at a party before getting together with her true romantic love interest. Adult characters drink casually, drugs are mentioned, and some products (Sunny Delight) are named. There's no violence, except for some family arguing.
