American Beauty (1999) I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all, it stretches on forever, like an ocean of time… For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout camp, watching falling stars… And yellow leaves, from the maple trees, that lined our street… Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper… And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird… And Janie… And Janie… And… Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me… but it’s hard to stay mad, when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much, my heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst… And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life… You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry… you will someday.

Kristen Wiig is no stranger to playing characters that are a bit of a mess.

And in her new film full of family dysfunction, Girl Most Likely, Wiig gets a chance to find the humor in some darkly comic situations. Wiig portrays Imogene, a once-promising playwright who now is in the middle of a nervous breakdown. After staging a suicide attempt, Imogene finds herself in the custody of her wacky estranged mother (Annette Bening) and back to living at her mom’s house — which now has a few extra people in it, including Matt Dillon as the mom’s boyfriend as well as a cute young boarder played by Darren Criss.

Girl Most Likely, directed by Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini, will hit theaters July 19.
