Keira Knightley Buys Chloe Grace Moretz Beer in Trailer for 'Laggies'
Director Lynn Shelton brought her latest film Laggies to the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, and now the film is hitting theaters this fall. It's pretty standard indie fare with Keira Knightley playing a twentysomething struggling with adulthood, lacking motivation while figuring out the next step of her life. But this one has a great supporting cast with Chloe Grace Moretz turning in another promising performance along with Sam Rockwell (The Way Way Back) and Mark Webber (Scott Pilgrim vs. the World). This doesn't look to break new ground, but with this caliber of cast, it really has charm. Watch it!
Here's the first trailer for Lynn Shelton's Laggies from A24:
Having spent her twenties comfortably inert, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) reaches a crisis when she finds herself squarely in adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to pursue any and no one to relate to, including her high school boyfriend (Mark Webber). When he proposes, Megan panics and given an opportunity to escape - at least temporarily - she hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika's world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell). Laggies is directed by Lynn Shelton (Your Sister's Sister), written by Andrea Seigel and A24 releases it October 24th.
Knightley's American accent is unsettling.

Sam Rockwell!? Yes, please.

Looks fairly generic and predictable.

yeah, it's predictable. But Keira is kinda cute here. And, of course, there is Sam Rockwell...
