WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

28-year-old Megan (Knightley) finds that nothing has changed for her since high school: still living with her boyfriend Anthony (Webber), and working a pedestrian job. When Anthony proposes to her, she flees in a state of panic and crosses paths with 16-year-old Annika (Moretz), who asks Megan to buy her and her friends some alcohol. After hanging with Annika for the night, she decides she needs to lay low for a week and takes up residence at Annika’s house, where she lives with her single father Craig (Rockwell)…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?
