While the movie shelves are loaded with whiny male protagonists whose lives fall apart and they retreat to somewhere/something to recover, there are fewer of these stories about women. So it was that I enjoyed watching Kristen Bell return home to her parents to be again the lifeguard she was as a teenager. I found the story resonant and the acting was great too, especially by Bell, Mamie Gummer and Alex Shaffer.
Cost: free from library
