Chloë Grace Moretz and Kiera Knightly in Laggies

Details Release Date: Oct 24, 2014; Rated: R; Length: 99 Minutes; Genre: Drama; With: Keira Knightley, Chloe Grace Moretz and Sam Rockwell; Distributor: A24 Films

In Laggies, 17-year-old Chloë Grace Moretz portrays a believably eye-rolling adolescent who lives with her single dad (Sam Rockwell) and befriends a woman in her late 20s fleeing her grown-up responsibilities (Keira Knightley). ''It was one of the chillest sets I've ever been on,'' she says. ''Sometimes we filmed. Other times we were just talking.'' Moretz loved the low-budget aesthetic of director Lynn Shelton (Your Sister's Sister). She also leaped at the chance to work with Knightley, one of her screen idols. ''My brother and I were always raving to her about how obsessed we've always been,'' she says, adding that she's seen Pride & Prejudice roughly ''one billion times.''
