Jenna Fischer has always played a great supporting character. On The Office, she was the ying to Michael's yang as his secretary. In movies like Hall Pass, Walk Hard, and Blades of Glory, she played second fiddle to the Owen Wilson, John C. Reilly, and Will Ferrell. But in her new indie, Fischer finally gets that starring role where she's the one with all the jokes.
In A Little Help she plays the wife of a cheating husband (Chris O'Donnell) who dies suddenly and she's left to clean up the mess he made. She also has to deal with her 12-year-old son who likes to tell people at school that his father died in 9/11 (yep, there are 9/11 jokes in this movie).
The movie won Best Feature at the San Diego Film Festival and the Phoenix Film Festival. The movie also stars Rob Benedict, Daniel Yelsky, and Kim Coates and was directed by Michael J. Weithorn. Here's the full (and long) synopsis.
