Watch Kristen Bell in the Trailer for <i>The Lifeguard</i>

A trailer has been released for Liz W. Garcia’s (Dawson’s Creek, Cold Case) indie drama The Lifeguard, which stars Kristen Bell, Martin Starr (Knocked Up), Mamie Gummer (Side Effects), Joshua Harto (The Dark Knight) and Oscar-nominee Amy Madigan (Twice in a Lifetime).

The film, which made its premiere at Sundance earlier this year, centers on Leigh (Bell), a 29-year-old who returns to her suburban hometown after both her New York job and love life go up in smoke. After moving back in with her parents, Leigh regresses back into her teenage life: reclaiming her old room, hanging out with high-school friends and taking up her former job as a lifeguard.

The Lifeguard will hit theaters in limited release on Aug. 30. Check out the trailer above.
