Laggies (October 2014)
Directed by: Lynn Shelton (Your Sister’s Sister, Safety Not Guaranteed)
Screenplay by: Andrea Seigel (first film?)
Starring: Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo), Keira Knightly (Pride & Prejudice), Sam Rockwell (Moon)
Tagline: A Comedy About Acting Your Age and Other Adult Decisions
Genre: Coming of Age, Comedy, Romance
Story: A young woman doesn’t want to grow up and lies to get away from her fiance for a weekend.
Buzz: James Rocchi (film.com) “Superbly written, handsomely made and full of terrific performances, “Laggies” is Shelton’s best film to date” Jordan Raup (filmstage.com) “ contrived and characters increasingly erratic. Megan is a destructive individual, whose actions hurt those around [her]”
Note to Self: Safety Not Guaranteed is in my watchlist. Keira Knightly will be OK, get over it. The main character seems to be a user but maybe that’s the point of the movie.
Verdict: Put it on my watchlist.
