| A coherent delight!
I was really surprised by the film 'Say When'/'Laggies' Something about the out set lead me to harshly expect a personality-less film. I was delighted however when I realised I was enjoying it from the word go. I think it was refreshing to see Keira knightly holding court as a brazen socially rebellious character as I have literally only really seen the pouting in corsets version of Knightly (entirely my fault) I now realise she has the gumption and watch-ability of a leading woman.

I'm not American so it's not watertight for me to say that the accent was spot on but it felt confident and I believed it! When I read the synopsis I was intrigued to see it because I love a film about unlikely partnerships it is the ultimate way to pull out more unique details in a story and the script was great! Sam Rockwell who played the scathing Lawyer dad was lathered in wit and I thought his performance was deliciously captivating. His character was a brilliant father figure both responsible and loving but really suave at the same time. Moretz also performed well in her role I really warmed to the dynamic pairing of her and knightly - it was smart casting. Throughout I felt the film had some great observations and moments that I could really connect with as the film draws on themes of late blooming and not following life's script the way our peers around us do. I did feel however that the resolve at the end wasn't as succulent as I'd hoped and perhaps a little self indulgent but what I did feel at the end was that I wanted to spend more time with these characters as the script and performances where distinctive and believable!
