‘Welcome to Me’ to screen at TIFF
Great news, everyone – Kristen Wiig’s latest film, Welcome to Me, has been added to the lineup of this year’s Toronto International Film Festival! The movie tells the story of a woman with Borderline Personality Disorder who wins the Megamillions lottery, quits her meds and buys herself a talk show on an infomercial channel where she talks and creates segments exclusively about herself. This movie is a dark comedic look at our obsession with celebrity and narcissism. Directed by Shira Piven, the movie stars Kristen Wiig, James Marsden, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Wes Bentley, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack and Linda Cardellini. Welcome to Me will have its World premiere on September 5th, and the festival runs from September 4th through 14th.
