The indie quirks of In A World… gives its classic Hollywood underdog premise a different colour

​Vocal coach Carol Solomon has always lived under the shadow of her father Sam Solomon, a well-regarded voice-over artist, who is set to receive a lifetime achievement award, and is contemplating retirement. Carol gets a break when she voices a temp track for The Amazon Games, a feminist action quadrilogy, in which she gets to voice the words coined by legendary voice-over artist Don LaFontaine, one that no one dared to use after his demise — “In a world…”. The makers are impressed and want Carol’s voice on the trailer but the situation gets complicated when her father, who harbours the regret of not being as legendary as LaFontaine, throws his hat in the ring, along with his protégé Gustav Warner. Meanwhile, Carol must sort out a domestic problem involving her sister, and come to terms with her feelings for nice-guy recording engineer Louis. A winner of the Best Screenplay award at the Sundance Film Festival, the indie quirks of In A World… gives its classic Hollywood underdog premise a different colour. The DVD comes with an audio commentary by Bell, a funny alternate opening sequence, deleted scenes which add context to events in the film, gag reel and wacky promos.
