Welcome To Me Is A Hit With The Critics!
The Movable Fest -- "Welcome to Me plays as a 21st Century version of “Being There,”
Indie Wire -- "Kristen Wiig fans, rejoice. The 'SNL' alumnus continues to quietly and steadily segue from sketch comedy on the small screen to feature length comedy on the big one, while still retaining her instinctive knack for hilarious shenanigans."
Daily Variety -- "startlingly inspired comedy"
Hollywood Reporter -- Funny, dark, and riding a very fine line in its depiction of mental illness, it may be the best thing we could hope would emerge from the side of Wiig"
Welcome To Me is coming to theaters in the Spring of 2015.
