The Lifeguard

Directed by Liz W. Garcia

On the verge of her 30th birthday, Leigh (Kristen Bell) leaves her busy life and job in New York City behind for her parents suburban home. Taking her old summer job as a lifeguard, she falls into her teenage life: hanging out, partying in the woods, and coming home late, leading to a dangerous affair that threatens to tear lives apart.

A former valedictorian quits her reporter job in New York and returns to the place she last felt happy, her childhood home in Connecticut. She gets work as a lifeguard and starts a dangerous relationship with a troubled teenager.

I agree wit another review. Normalizing her sleeping with a 16 year old is gross. I completely ge it with people of all ages feeling like their lost and in a rut but everyone knows if this were a man and a teenage girl, it wouldn't have so many 5 star ratings.

Predictable plot and uneven acting. But, as always, Bell is engaging, and her performance full of tremendous depth.

Good storyline. Depicts a group of people at various stages of their “coming of age” A person doesn’t have to be young to find life challenging, face insecurities and want to experience freedom. Its how you get back to center that is most profound!
