Ellie Kemper is probably best known for her central performance in Tina Fey’s wonderful show The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, as well as The Office.
Kemper headlines romantic comedy Happiness For Beginners, the official synopsis reads as follows:
Helen (Kemper) has always lived her life as far from the edge as possible. Finding herself newly divorced and a little lost, Helen needs a reset and signs up for the “Adventure of a Lifetime!” The adventure is a backcountry survival course hiking the Appalachian Trail with a group of oddball strangers. From the beginning, Helen’s plan to be the best hiker is tested and she finds more than just herself in the wilderness. Based on the wildly popular novel, Happiness For Beginners reminds us that sometimes you have to get lost before you’re found.
Kemper stars alongside Luke Grimes, Nico Santos, Blythe Danner, Ben Cook, Shayvawn Webster, Esteban Benito, Gus Birney, and Julia Shiplett.
Irish filmmaker Vicky Wight wrote and directed the film, adapted from the novel of the same name by Katherine Center.
