About In A World
Carol (Lake Bell) is a woman trying to succeed in a man’s world; she is a voice-over artist and vocal coach who would like to move into movie trailer work, which is unfortunately completely dominated by men. An under-achiever, she is nevertheless obsessed with her field and collects interesting voices in-between coaching celebrities. Despite being in her thirties, she still lives with her father Sam (Fred Melamed), a self-obsessed voice-over star who is about to be given a lifetime achievement award. Gustav (Ken Marino), the man poised to take over his mantle, is just as pompous and preening. When a female-led blockbuster needs a voice-over, Carol learns that the studio executive might consider giving the job to a woman and finds herself competing against both her father and Gustav.
