Laggies

(2014)

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 (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad (Sam Rockwell).

‘Laggies’ Blu-ray Preview: Shooting in Seattle | EXCLUSIVE

Director Lynn Shelton reveals why she was more than happy to shoot in Seattle in our exclusive preview for Laggies, which debuts on Blu-ray and DVD February 10 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. This comedy was originally set in Orange County, California, but the filmmaker reveals that version fell apart, leading them to shoot and set the movie in different areas of Seattle. We also hear from a number of crew members who break down the several different locations they shot in.

Keira Knightley and Chloe Moretz shine in this feel-good comedy about two unlikely friends: Megan, a 28-year-old who's not ready for adulthood, and Annika, a 16-year-old who wonders if there's life after high school. Panicked after her boyfriend proposes, Megan hides out in the house Annika shares with her single dad (Sam Rockwell). As their paths intertwine in surprising and hilarious ways, Megan and Annika help each other to stop lagging... and start living. Kaitlyn Dever, Gretchen Mol, Ellie Kemper, Tiya Sircar and Mark Webber round out the supporting cast.
