Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have re-titled the indie comedy Imogene.  The film will now be called “Girl Most Likely“.  The title refers to formerly-eponymous character (played by Kristen Wiig) who wrote a hit play when she was a child but is now a total loser.  After faking a suicide attempt to win back her ex-boyfriend, Imogene is forced to move back in with her kooky mother (Annette Bening), her mom’s kooky boyfriend (Matt Dillon), and her kooky brother (Christopher Fitzgerald).  It’s not a good movie, and I’m surprised Lionsgate is giving it a nationwide release.

Hit the jump to check out the press release.  Girl Most Likely will open on July 19, 2013.

SYNOPSIS

Kristen Wiig stars as Imogene, once a promising young New York playwright whose promise has fizzled, thanks to a crisis of confidence. Heavily in denial about being dumped by her society boyfriend, Imogene uses her skill for drama to stage an elaborate fake suicide as an appeal for his sympathy. But her attempt backfires when she’s put into the custody of Zelda, her estranged gambling addict mother (Annette Bening), and must return home with her to the Jersey shore. Desperate to get back to her Manhattan circle of so- called friends, Imogene must finally deal with her family, including her unique brother (Christopher Fitzgerald), Zelda’s new boyfriend The Bousche (Matt Dillon), plus a cute young lodger (Darren Criss),who together help Imogene sort out her place in the world.
