For the first time ever, a first-run movie is being released to DCL’s video streaming service, hoopla, (and to you) simultaneous to its release at 1,000 theaters nationwide. You can attend the opening night of Welcome to Me right from your home…for free!
Welcome to Me is adult fare (due to its “R” rating), but it’s a movie that promises to be funny, poignant and provocative, all at the same time.
“What happens when a young woman with Borderline Personality Disorder, who hasn’t turned off her TV in eleven years, wins the lottery? In the case of Alice Klieg (Saturday Night Live’s Kristen Wiig), she quits her psychiatric meds and buys her own talk show. Inspired by the immortal Oprah, she broadcasts her dirty laundry as both a form of exhibitionism and a platform to share her peculiar views on everything from nutrition to relationships to neutering pets. Also starring Wes Bentley, James Marsden, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Jennifer Jason Leigh and Linda Cardellini.”
The movie’s hoopla page is available now, but you won’t be able to check it out until Friday.
