‘Laggies’ Trailer: Keira Knightley Is Feeling a Little Lost
Here is the first trailer for Laggies: in which Keira Knightley and Chloe Grace Moretz become an unlikely pair of friends. The trailer does a good job of setting up the film’s premise: Knightley plays Megan who, 10 years after graduating high school, is still drifting though life. After a surprise proposal by her boyfriend, she decides she needs to take a week off from her life and falls in with high schooler Annika and her group of friends. From there, Megan starts to develop a relationship with Annika’s father Craig because, duh, who doesn’t wanna make out with Sam Rockwell?
Mostly though it’s nice to see Knightley branching out into some non-period roles. Between her heartbroken singer in Begin Again and the ever-adolescent Megan, we’re seeing some sides of Knightley’s talent this year that we haven’t seen much of since Bend It Like Beckham.
Laggies was something of a hit at Sundance, where it was snatched up by A24. It’s set to hit theaters on October 24.
