Following its premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival, Lynn Shelton’s LAGGIES will hit US cinemas this autumn. Today we can bring you the first trailer for the indie drama comedy, with Keira Knightley pulling off an American accent (only just!).

Knightley stars as Megan, a 28 year-old stuck in a rut. When her long-term boyfriend gets down on one knee to propose, Megan scarpers, landing in the lap of highschooler Annika (Chloe Grace Moretz) and her dad Craig (Sam Rockwell). With her parents urging her to get her proper adult life together, Megan starts to realize she can’t keep waiting around for the future to happen. Ellie Kemper, Mark Webber, Gretchen Mol, Kaitlyn Dever, Tiya Sircar and Daniel Zovatto co-star.

I’m a huge, huge fan of Shelton’s YOUR SISTER’S SISTER, and LAGGIES seems to follow the same kind of ‘indie’ path. Although that could get boring, this stellar cast looks like it may impress…hopefully!

LAGGIES will arrive in US cinemas from 26th September, with the UK following on 10th October.

Considering Jazmine grew up watching CARRY ON SCREAMING, THE LION KING and JURASSIC PARK on repeat for weeks on end, it made sense for her to study film at London South Bank University. It’s also a good thing that her course requires a lot of sitting down because she’s very accident-prone. When she’s not examining her bruises, she likes pretending that she doesn’t live in Southend-On-Sea and spends hours mindlessly blogging. Favourite films include BLUE VALENTINE, ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND and TOY STORY 2.
