Keira Knightley stars in one of 2014's best and one of its worst (Guess which one this is)
Good news, Keira Knightley fans: She stars in one of 2014's best films. Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until Christmas Day to see The Imitation Game, which stars Knightley and Benedict Cumberbatch in a tale about Alan Turing. In the meantime, we have Laggies to contend with.
Here, Knightley plays commitment-phobe 28-year-old Megan, who panics when her high-school sweetheart proposes. Megan has particular disdain for her former high-school and college chums who are either engaged, married or pregnant—she's a selfish shrew who doesn't want to grow up. We've seen enough movies about this type of character and Laggies fails on every level. The script from writer-director Lynn Shelton (Your Sister's Sister) is pedestrian, mundane and too eager to please... and I was just as eager for this film to end.
