Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Lynn Shelton's Laggies features Keira Knightley as Megan, a woman in her late twenties who finds herself living much like she has since high school. She has no career path, she hangs with the same friends, and she's been dating her high-school sweetheart Anthony (Mark Webber) ever since their prom. One night, Megan meets Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz), a teenager who lives with her dad (Sam Rockwell), a divorce lawyer, and the two develop a friendship. When Anthony proposes to Megan, she needs a week to think it over, and moves in with Annika and her father. Laggies screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
