  1. Thomas's rating of the film In a World...

    Competent debut, clever and funny.

  2. Jeremy's rating of the film In a World...

    Oh, this was just a pure joy from start to finish. Quirky scenario, great script and a hugely likeable cast make this an easy film to warm to. Music choices are spot on (who doesn't love Tears For Fears?) and really I found the whole thing an unexpected treat to watch. Looking forward to Lake Bell's next project!

  3. chloe's rating of the film In a World...

    good film to watch on a plane journey. light-hearted and amusing. very white-mainstream-hollywood but fun and clever as well

  4. Superfrog's rating of the film In a World...

    meh.Rom com with a little bit of a twist. Why do US people need to be so awkward about sex in films.

  5. mis marg's rating of the film In a World...

  6. McOpinionated's rating of the film In a World...

    Nice idea, engaging diverse characters, some good quirkiness - relatively rare to feature people working and doing "ok" - but with of course typical super-rich American Dream success being the main reward if not necessarily the goal for the central character. Since the theme is the emancipation of the female voice, the final scene opens a can of worms, politically, if you are interested IRL issues.

  7. Alex Doca's rating of the film In a World...

    Surprisingly good and refreshing.

  8. Lydia stott's rating of the film In a World...

    Great film! Its funny and unique.

  9. HoganShogan's rating of the film In a World...

    Lake Bell is one of my new heroes. She wrote, directed and starred in this indie masterpiece about a vocal coach who aspires to be a female trailer voiceover artist. Its a film that all women, who wish to creative, should see. At the end, you just want to punch the sky with delight. You could adapt this tale to many creative professions.

  10. paul_quixote's rating of the film In a World...

    Meaningfully riffs on generational pain, what it means to be a good person, and how what you see on someone's surface is rarely reflective of what's going on underneath. Begins as an awkward guy gets the girl thing, but resists centering the male protagonist's "fear" and the female protagonists "unavailability." Instead it's just about how people (men and women) struggle to communicate their feelings effectively.

  11. Ariel Rowan's rating of the film In a World...

    50 % parental shadow 50% endearment

  12. Farès Moussa's rating of the film In a World...

    Fun, easy feel-good rom-com; with a strangely retro feel about it.

  13. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film In a World...

    Lake Bell does fine in the lead role, and is ably supported by the likes of Fred Melamed, Ken Marino, Rob Corddry, Alexandra Holden, and Demetri Martin. It's just a shame that it feels a bit too unfocused and meandering. The humour isn't sharp enough, the drama is tough to care about (with the exception of scenes featuring Corddry), and it's just all a bit too frothy when you can't help but wish it had more bite.

  14. UnbrandedFilms's rating of the film In a World...

  15. Pango's rating of the film In a World...

    Well written debut. Mulaate Ashtanke music in the opening is fantastic. Funny and intelligent. 3.5

  16. Ayesha Casely-Hayford's rating of the film In a World...

    LOVE this. "Whose Ready To Be Heard?" Really fun. The brilliantly chosen cast just play with the whole film keeping it light and easy. Perfectly awkward. Awesome, uncommonly presented POV. Love the removal of being too cheesy but still hitting it bang on in respect of the politics. A film of honesty, strength, respect, truth and love. Such a great watch. Lake Bell is a don.

  17. nickolia's rating of the film In a World...

    Witty film with lots of charm and some nice emotional touch points. DO NOT try and do anything else whilst watching the film - the speed of the banter can be so fast that you'll miss it if you're not concentrating. Very last (thankfully short) scene is pretty cheesy - 2/5 for that.

  18. Joel's rating of the film In a World...

    Really clever writing and the ability to capture a fascinating "world" (pardon the pun) that most folk don't know much about. A rewarding little film full of wit and warmth.

  19. Zineu Simionato's rating of the film In a World...

    I could watch Lake Bell for hours.

  20. Ingrid Aldama's rating of the film In a World...

    A good watch. Sadly, something I didn't notice until this film pointed it out.

  21. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film In a World...

    the lack of ambition in modern feminist romcoms is really disheartening

  22. HenriqueA's rating of the film In a World...

    Good, warm and fuzzy romantic comedy with a welcomed feminist edge. The premise is actually pretty interesting, but it would've been just a run of the mill milquetoast story if it wasn't for Lake Bell showing great chops directing, acting and writing. And the suporting cast is wonderful. I could watch 90 minutes of Demetri Martin, Tig Nataro and Nick Offerman being awkward and funny in the recording studio.

  23. Amandio Filipe Moura's rating of the film In a World...

  24. DSPRKY's rating of the film In a World...

    Lake Bell does a great job directing/acting and the supporting cast is fun to see (I will watch Ken Marino in literally anything) and hear. Unfortunately the story is over before it begins. That's it?
