Using a screenplay written by Michelle Morgan, Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini teamed up to direct the film. "Girl Most Likely" was released into United States theaters by Roadside Attractions on July 19, 2013.

She stages a suicide with the hopes of getting her ex-boyfriend back but instead awakens to news that she's being held in a psychiatric ward and will soon be released into the custody of her inattentive at best mother, Zelda (Annette Bening).

When Imogene returns to her mother's house, she learns that things have changed considerably. Her brother, Ralph (Christopher Fitzgerald), is still there but a young man named Lee (Darren Criss) is now renting her old bedroom and what appears to be a compulsive liar named George Bush (Matt Dillon) is sleeping with her mother.

    Imogene: "In a casino parking lot?"

    After taking custody of Imogene, Zelda shows little interest in actually caring for her, as evidenced by her choice to leave her locked in the backseat of her car while she gambles. Imogene is not impressed, especially after she's forced to wander a casino in her hospital gown in search of her mother.
