Keira Knightley stars in this comedy-drama from the director of Your Sister’s Sister, following a woman who can’t let go of her youth. When her boyfriend proposes, she delays the question by using a fake ‘business trip’ excuse to get away from the situation. Instead, she hangs out with a 16-year-old whom she bought beer for (Chloë Grace Moretz), as well as her clued-up father (Sam Rockwell).

Knightley gives a delightfully loose-limbed performance in Lynn Shelton's polished sixth feature.

Profits from the cast's amiable chemistry amid the A-B storytelling. Just don't expect it to define a generation.

How much you get out of this American indie romcom will depend on where you stand on Keira Knightley doing her goofy, 'What me?' normal girl routine.

A nice movie. It's frisky and cheerful, even when tears are on the way. But it isn't a very good movie, mainly because, like its heroine, it's reluctant to make up its mind about what it wants to be.

There are light and fluffy pleasures to be had from this disposable rom-com.

It's not going to change your life, but there's an undeniable old school charm to it.

From production values to performances to the script, everything here is more polished than we've come to expect from Shelton's lovably loose films. Yet the finished product still feels of a piece with that body of work.

Lynn 'Humpday' Shelton takes a sideways look at the challenges of growing up. Not, perhaps, her very best but still very watchable.
