Laggies is a coming of age story about a 28-year-old woman stuck in permanent adolescence. Unable to find her career calling, still hanging out with the same friends, and living with her high school boyfriend, Megan must finally navigate her own future…
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what’s now showing
Shelton moves a little closer to the main stream with this Keira Knightley vehicle that finds a woman ten years on from graduation night realizing she is still waiting for her life to begin. When her long term boyfriend proposes she panics and holes up with a teen she's met and
winds up taking with the teen's father. Better than it sounds with game turns by Sam Rockwell and Chloe Grace Moretz. Nothing special.
Keira s teeth is back....again! and we have Chloe Moretz to complete the sentence...seriously, this gal???? talentless,aphatic, ugly and her face makes me feel sleepy! b sides, the movie has a silly and weak plot about a 28 year old woman who cant decide if it s time to marry or not, but when meet the father of boring Chloe...bang! guess the final? damn predictable.
09/15 I liked the concept of this 30 year old women trying to figure out herself and her current life. Being older doesn't mean having things figured out and it's actually quite frightening. This film proves Keira is more than a drama actress who only does period films. Enjoyable!
If you got nothing to do on a rainy afternoon, and want to share the cinema with a large number of teenage girls on their night out, go see this comedy.
I give the two stars to lovely Keira Knightley who manages to lift up the movie ( a bit) with her light and natural presence on the screen.
the director focused more on meg's sappy love predicament than exploring her relationship with annika, in which an introspection of both coming-of-age stories would've been much more interesting. it was enjoyable though.
It doesn't break the formulaic convention and it lacks all that would've made such a complex thematic go beyond normalcy within the regular dramedy/coming-of-age related feature film. On the other hand, it's witty and quirky and it provides a lightweight enjoyable time. Suffice it to say, this was no step forward for neither of those involved, but rather a break from more serious emotionally demanding work.
