Liz W. Garcia’s debut film, “The Lifeguard” premiered last night at the Sundance Film Festival to a packed theater and now we’re finally getting some information on Sendhil’s role in the film.

High-school nostalgia meets early midlife crisis in writer-director Liz W. Garcia’s drama. Leigh London (Kristen Bell) is dissatisfied with her job as an AP reporter, and an affair with her boss (Sendhil Ramamurthy), so she abandons New York for her parents’ house in Connecticut. She hooks up with her old friends Todd (Martin Starr) and Mel (Mamie Gummer), and gets her old job as a lifeguard at a condo-complex pool. That’s where she meets Jason (David Lambert), a disaffected student at Leigh’s old high school (where Mel is now assistant principal) — and soon they are engaged in hot sex in the pool’s bathroom. Garcia’s script has sharp dialogue, even if the plot points are telegraphed well in advance. Bell’s performance, as a woman avoiding adulthood, is revelatory in its directness.
