Lake Bell uses comedy to challenge more than one movie-making paradigm

Lake Bell has done TV, film, even an automotive column. But as the buzz behind her new film (not to mention, the film itself) In a World…illustrates, the burgeoning queen of all media has clearly arrived. The film’s title is a nod to the late Don LaFontaine, whose trailer voiceovers often began with that phrase – now a pop culture phenomenon. We speak with her about the inspiration behind the film, the real-life challenges for women in Hollywood,and about the nearly universal praise she has received for her new film. The film opens this Friday in Chicago. Photo: courtesy of heebmagazine.com
