Get to Know the Cast of 'Laggies' by Streaming These 5 Movies

See our picks for streaming choices featuring the talents of Keira Knightley, Sam Rockwell and Chloë Grace Moretz.

Opening this weekend is Lynn Shelton's Laggies, which tells the story of a misguided woman (Keira Knightley) in a very relatable situation where she finds herself firmly  in adulthood and with nothing much to show for it. In one formative evening, she rejects her boyfriend's proposal and befriends a high-school girl looking for help buying alcohol. She ends up spending a week to recoup and self-reflect at her new teenaged friend's home. 

With a variety of talent billed in this film, we take a look at some of their previous work that's currently available to stream.

Keira Knightley as Megan

Like so many others in her generation, Megan has had a few false starts in her life. After swiftly dodging her high-school boyfriend's proposal, she starts hanging out with teenager Annika. 

Watch Keira Knightley in Pirates of the Carribbean on Netflix.

Keira Knightley role Laggies is such a departure from the dramatic period pieces she is known for. In Pirates, she was Elizabeth Swann, the spoiled but plucky governor's daughter who got caught up in the whirlwind of piracy.  

Chloë Grace Moretz as Annika

Annika, the 16-year-old troublemaker, takes in the similarly wayward Megan when her life derails. The relationship, mostly an exchange of room and board for booze and adult wisdom, grounds the movie's central narrative.

Watch Chloë Grace Moretz in Carrie on Netflix.

The majority of criticism around this remake of Brian dePalma's Carrie is that it's not the original. But once you stop holding this movie to that impossible standard, it's quite entertaining, and Moretz proves capable of carrying such an iconic cinematic character. 

Sam Rockwell as Craig 

Craig is Annika's dad who begrudingly accepts Megan's presence, but, of course, is won over by her charm. 

Watch Sam Rockwell in Galaxy Quest on Netflix.

Bless the day Galaxy Quest became available on Netflix so we can all reflect on Sam Rockwell as Guy, the extra in the fake TV show who keeps being killed off. Guy brings the laughs withhis panicky anxiety about his ever-impending death. 

Mark Webber as Anthony

Anthony is Megan's eager high-school boyfriend who proposes and freaks her out.

Watch Mark Webber in 13 Sins on Netflix.

Webber stars in this thriller as the game-show contestant who has no idea what he's in for. Things get creepier and weirder as he passes every challenge, and the series of plot twists end with the biggest surpise of all.

Ellie Kemper as Allison

Allison is Megan's friend who just doesn't understand her and unlike Megan, was not afraid to get engaged. 

Watch Ellie Kemper in The Office on Netflix. 

Ellie Kemper joined the cast of The Office  relatively late in the series as Erin, the secretary hired to replace Pam when she left for art school. Watch Ellie Kemper pair up with Mindy Kaling for this in-character music video.

"There is a space that exists halfway between the man himself and the shadow of his legend and, within that space, there is something that in its own magical and magnificent way can only be true." When it comes to understanding the life, image, and iconicity of Prince, Albert Magnoli's moody and imaginative musical PURPLE RAIN, released on this day in 1984, remains the artist's best and most personal masterpiece.

Elia Kazan's invigorating classic ON THE WATERFRONT was released in theaters today in 1954, solidifying the boundless passion and physical mastery of its pioneering star, Marlon Brando, seen here applying his own makeup and interacting with his marvelous co-star Eva Marie Saint and Kazan himself on the film's set.
