The trailer for the bittersweet dramedy "The Lifeguard," sees Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell as a 30-year-old ... ugh sorry, 29-year-old woman who's going through an early mid-life crisis after a bitter breakup compels her to put her big-city career on hold. Now back living in her childhood home, Bell's character starts to revert to her careless, high school lifestyle: she gets a dead-end job as a local lifeguard, which is about the same time she starts a foolish relationship with a teenage boy (David Lambert). Meanwhile, her friends (Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr) and parents (Amy Madigan, Adam LeFevre) both show signs of concern and anger.
Leigh (Kristen Bell) is almost 30, and living a seemingly perfect life in New York. But when her career and love life both come crashing down, she flees to her suburban hometown and regresses right back into teenage life and behavior. She moves into her old room with her parents, hangs around with friends who never left town, and reclaims her high school job as a condo-complex lifeguard. But as Leigh enjoys shirking adult life and responsibilities and enters into an illicit affair, she begins a chain reaction that affects those closest to her.
The Lifeguard stars Kristen Bell, Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, David Lambert, Amy Madigan, Adam LeFevre
