One review

  • Megan (Keira Knightley) is 28 with an adoring boyfriend, an indulgent father, a worried mother, a group of friends entrenched in marriage, motherhood, and career advancement, and no motivation. She’s all too content to remain developmentally arrested, serving as a sign girl for her father’s company and lazing about at her parents’ home instead of seeing a career counselor.

    Her friend’s wedding unveils two surprises: a proposal from her longtime boyfriend, whose takeaway from a self-help seminar is to be less procrastinating; and her father in a compromising position. The shocks send her driving into the night and alighting upon a grocery-store parking lot where she agrees to buy some alcohol for a group of high schoolers led by Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz). She ends up spending half the night with them, drunkenly reflecting on how distant she feels from her friends: “Maybe they’re the ones that are telling the jokes and I’m the one missing them.”
