First trailer drops for Lynn Shelton's coming-of-age drama
“Stop lagging and start living,” demands the trailer for Laggies starring Keira Knightley (Begin Again) and Chloë Grace Moretz (Hit-Girl from Kick-Ass).
Made by A24 Films, the studio behind Spring Breakers, Laggies will be released in the US October 24th, but no UK release date has yet been confirmed.
Here’s the official synopsis for the coming-of-age drama from ‘mumblecore’ director Lynn Shelton (Humpday, Your Sister’s Sister):
“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 (Chloe Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell).”
The film debuted at the Sundance Festival earlier this year. Check out the first trailer below.
