First trailer for Laggies arrives online

A24 Films have just released their first trailer for Lynn Shelton's (Your Sisters Sister) Laggies.

For some people, the term 'mid-life crisis' conjures visions of blokes with bad comb overs ditching long-suffering wives for pneumatic new models and buying sports cars. But life crises can happen at any time, as Keira Knightley's (Anna Karenina) Megan learns in Lynn Shelton's latest.

Megan would appear to be a carefree young woman on the cusp of 30 with her life in good order. She has a devoted boyfriend in Anthony (Mark Webber) who is ready to propose. But Megan's suddenly panicked that this is everything her life will ever be, and runs off.

She ends up hanging out with teenager Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and her single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell). Soon, Megan's experiencing her youth once again, even if that does include making out with Craig. Then there's her friend Allison (Ellie Kemper) who disapproves of Megan's new lifestyle...

Shelton, the director of Humpday (2009), Your Sister's Sister (2011) and Touchy Feely (2013), tends to specialise in these focused character tales, and she's certainly scored a good cast to bring them to life this time.

Laggies is set for release on 10 October in the UK (where it may go by a different name) and 24 October in the US.
