There's not much plot here and very little in the way of character development. Alice is defined by her disorder and the screenplay isn't interested in delving into her life and relationships.

No shortage of talent here. Pity they're all underused.

Welcome to Me is an unsettling comedy, and I mean that in the best possible way.

"Welcome to Me" has its charming, funny and sensitive moments, but it also suffers from its own form of instability.

It's a tricky business playing someone who is mentally ill and perhaps should be confined for observation, especially in a dark comedy. Wiig manages to make Alice funny as hell, endearing, sad and sometimes a little frightening.

There's dark comedy, and then there's take-no-prisoners, dare-you-to-keep-looking dark comedy. Kristen Wiig's "Welcome to Me" falls decidedly in the latter category, making us laugh but feel deeply unsettled about doing so.

The movie is small, but the actors make it seem larger, like binoculars turned around the right way.

At turns horribly funny and simply horrific, Piven's film suggests our therapeutic age has reduced us all to psychic cripples who resort to emotional exhibitionism in lieu of honest self-examination and self-expression.

A nervy, discomfiting comedy starring Kristen Wiig and a deep bench of supporting talent.
