In a world (2013) is an intimate indie comedy directed by and starring Lake Bell.

An underachieving vocal coach is motivated by her father, the king of movie-trailer voice-overs, to pursue her aspirations of becoming a voice-over star. Amidst pride, sexism and family dysfunction, she sets out to change the voice of a generation.

The movie tells an enjoyable story of a niche occupation, people doing movie-trailer voice-overs, and letting the viewer get a glimpse into the drama and prestige that this world endures.

While the characters were somewhat believable, their lack of development and building of depth left me wondering why I should root for them – it failed to make me emotionally identify myself with a particular person.

Score: 6/10 (Fair)
