Welcome to Me, a story of a mentally ill woman who spends the money from a huge lottery win on creating her own television show, would, in the wrong hands, have been a disaster. But somehow, director Shira Piven created a beautiful, funny/sad masterpiece instead. The key to her success is Kristen Wiig (still, in my opinion, hugely underrated as an actor) who gives a wonderfully subtle and sympathetic performance in the lead, giving humanity to a character who could have become no more than a punchline.
