Her characters wear their emotions on their sleeves and normally, she is a wearer of many hats, but for this time out, mayoress of the Seattleites Lynn Shelton worked from a screenplay that is not her own and yet, according to the critical response at Sundance, we find much of the same charisma and tone in previous comedic items such as Touchy Feely , Your Sister’s Sistere and Humpday.

Gist: Written by Andrea Seigel, a young woman Megan (Keira Knightley) reacts to her boyfriend’s (Mark Webber) marriage proposal by pretending to go on a business retreat but she actually hangs out with a new 16-year old friend Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz). Rockwell will play an older character named Craig in the film.

Release Date: Picked up by the A24 folks in the first Sundance weekend, the Premiere category preemed film will receive a summer release.
