In “The Lifeguard,” Kristen Bell plays Leigh, a New York journalist who returns home to Connecticut to find herself. While there, she spends her free time as a lifeguard at the local pool and begins a relationship with teenager from the neighborhood.
In this exclusive clip from the film, Leigh tells Little Jason, the boy she’s been seeing, about a story she wrote while working in New York.
There was a man who kept a tiger in his apartment, but the animal got sick and died. The story appears to be inspired by Ming of Harlem, the tiger that was found living in an apartment after he bit his owner. You can read about that story here.
Watch the clip above, and check out “The Lifeguard” when it opens in theaters on August 30.
