Watch: Keira Knightly Struggles to Grow Up in UK Trailer for 'Laggies'
"Why would you tweak the nipples on the Buddha?" After premiering at the Sundance Film Festival at the beginning of the year, Lynn Shelton's latest film Laggies is poised for release next month in both the US and the UK. And it's the latter country that has a new look at the film in the form of a new trailer, where you can see that the film is actually called Say When across the pond. It seems like a typical indie story of a woman struggling to find herself and become responsible while doing everything to avoid it, but the presence of Chloe Grace Moretz and Sam Rockwell with Keira Knightley seem to elevate it. Watch it!
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.

She seems a little irritating, but not completely unwatchable. as long as she doesn't act like Theron in YOUNG ADULT I will probably be okay with it.

Did the movie actually tell us it had an extremely original premise...?
