Laggies Directed by Lynn Shelton
It’s a silly, slight film which doesn’t always adhere to tight patterns of logic, but there’s always the sense its makers know and understand this.

We basically know where Laggies is headed; the film is a soft, straight, easy pitch down the middle, story-wise. And it’s a light movie: You won’t get a particularly profound look at adults who act like kids from it. The screenplay resolves character conflicts with unnerving speed. But this is also a uniquely inviting film, shot through with the humanity with which Shelton (who directed the glorious Humpday and Your Sister’s Sister) usually treats her characters.

There’s an interesting dynamic to be explored in the relationship between a teenager and an adult stuck at that emotional level, but Laggies only makes brief swipes at it. The troubling question at the end isn’t whether Megan learned anything, but whether Shelton can remember the qualities that made her someone to watch in the first place.
