Sundance 2014: The making of Sam Rockwell's 'Laggies' [Video]

PARK CITY, Utah -- Megan, a young woman about to move on to the next chapter in her life, makes some borderline decisions in "Laggies."

Played by Keira Knightley in a Sundance Film Festival feature from director Lynn Shelton, Megan isn't sure she's ready to get married, isn't sure what she wants to do for a career, and isn't sure what she really thinks of a single man she meets (played by Sam Rockwell).

In an ensemble that includes Chloe Grace Moretz and Kaitlyn Dever as high school students, Mark Webber as Megan's boyfriend and Jeff Garlin as Megan's father, "Laggies" (a high school nickname for somebody who's lagging behind) has been one of the most popular Sundance premieres to screen so far at this year's festival.

At the Los Angeles Times Studio, Shelton, Rockwell, Moretz and Rockwell talk about the making of the movie, even as Rockwell tries his best to ruin the film's entire plot.
