WATCH: Knightley, Rockwell and Moretz Shack Up In Trailer for Lynn Shelton’s ‘Laggies’ (NEW POSTER)

WATCH: Knightley, Rockwell and Moretz Shack Up In Trailer for Lynn Shelton's 'Laggies' (NEW POSTER)

The fine track record that Seattle filmmaker Lynn Shelton had established with “Humpday” and “Your Sister’s Sister” met a speed bump “Touchy Feely,” which attracted mixed reviews. (Here’s TOH’s interview with Shelton and star Rosemarie DeWitt.) Her latest title “Laggies" was scooped up by A24 at Sundance and marks a return to form.

Significantly, "Laggies" is the first Shelton film based on someone else’s writing, in this case Andrea Siegel. No question Sam Rockwell marks an improvement over originally cast Paul Rudd, while Keira Knightley eventually replaced Rebecca Hall. 

Check out the first trailer, which showcases another mix of fish-out-of-water tropes and angst-ridden adults. Megan, 28, (Keira Knightley) enjoys hanging out with Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz), 16, who she meets outside her old high school at a class reunion gone wrong. After her boring boyfriend (Marc Webber) proposes, Megan escapes from her life by shacking up at Annika’s house, where she is confronted by the girl’s single dad (Sam Rockwell). There’s hope yet for the rom-com.

The new poster leaves much to be desired. What do you think?
