The Lifeguard

Like next year’s Veronica Mars sequel, The Lifeguard features Kristen Bell returning to her hometown and reconnecting with old pals. Unlike Veronica Mars, though, The Lifeguard‘s Leigh London is in the midst of a personal crisis that sends her regressing into adolescent behavior. That includes moving back in with her parents, resuming her high school job as a lifeguard, drinking and smoking pot like a rebellious teen, and even striking up a flirtation with an actual teen (David Lambert).

At first, Leigh’s two best friends, closeted Todd (Martin Starr) and school vice principal Mel (Mamie Gummer) are happy to tag along for the ride, but as Leigh falls into deeper trouble they find themselves dragged down with her. The first trailer for the Sundance dramedy has just hit the web, and you can watch it after the jump.
