In A World: Lake Bell (“Children’s Hospital”) stars in “In a World,” a hilarious romantic comedy about a struggling vocal coach who strikes it big in the cutthroat world of movie-trailer voiceovers, only to find herself in direct competition with the industry’s reigning king — her father. Written and directed by Bell, who won the Sundance 2013 Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award for the script, “In a World” also stars Fred Melamed (“A Serious Man”), Rob Corddry, Demetri Martin, Michaela Watkins (“Enlightened”), Ken Marino (“Burning Love”), Nick Offerman (“Parks and Recreation”), Alexandra Holden (The Hot Chick) and Tig Notaro (“The Sarah Silverman Program”).

The Invisible War: The National Alliance on Mental Illness of Beaufort County (NAMI) is partnering with Hope Haven of the Lowcountry and USCB to present the Academy Award® nominated film “The Invisible War” on Tuesday, January 28, at 6 p.m., at USCB’s Center for the Arts.

Focusing on the powerful stories of several young veterans, “The Invisible War” is a moving examination of the staggering personal and societal costs of sexual assaults in the US military. Combining interviews with high-ranking military officials and members of Congress with the devastating testimony of veterans, the film catalogues the conditions that have protected perpetrators and allowed this epidemic to continue. Doors open at 5:30 p.m. After the screening there will be a panel-led discussion. Admission is free, but seating is limited. Contact Laura Conway at 843-681-2200, ext. 2#, or email nami@hargray.com to reserve your seat.
