A COMEDY ABOUT ACTING YOUR AGE AND OTHER ADULT DECISIONS.
Ten years after graduating from high school, Megan (Keira Knightley) still doesn’t know what to do with her life, but a chance encounter with a teenage girl (Chloë Grace Moretz) is the first step toward change. Sometimes it feels like every American indie film follows an everyman who’s stuck in his or her ways and forced to reevaluate everything. Here’s another one of those stories, lightweight, but very sympathetically crafted by director Lynn Shelton and writer Andrea Seigel. Knightley is good as the twentysomething who finds it easier to deal with her problems with a teenage version of herself by her side.
