THE LIFEGUARD is an indie comedy-drama film written and directed by Liz W. Garcia (writer on television shows Dawson’s Creek, Wonderfalls, Cold Case, Memphis Beat), which marks her feature directing debut. Premiered at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival, the film stars Kristen Bell, Mamie Gummer, Martin Starr, David Lambert, Joshua Harto, Amy Madigan.
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.
