Kristen Wiig in Crying in a Sweater on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Posted on


Kristen Wiig oscillates between big-budget movies like Ghostbusters and independent ventures like Nasty Baby. But on Monday’s episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live! Wiig premiered her new “extremely independent” movie, Crying in a Sweater.

In every scene from the fake trailer, Wiig lives up to the film’s title by, well, crying into several sweaters. The trailer features an overlay of text praising the film, saying it’s “a raw, aching, tour de force” and that it’s an official selection at the Cannes Film Festival.
