Storyline

Megan's approaching 30 with a good degree and a boyfriend in hand, but when he proposes at her friend's wedding and everyone seems to think that the best way to advance in her career is to take a seminar where you find out what animal you are, Megan's understandably feeling lost. After meeting teenagers who want her to buy them beer, Megan is drawn into 16-year-old Annika's simpler life. She ends up moving in with Annika and her single father, juggling the life of a teen and that of an adult, two romantic interests, and the feeling of lagging behind. Written by Anne Campbell

Relatable however a bit unbelievable
15 January 2015 | by matrixman048See all my reviews

The story of a 20 something year old having to face "real life" is very relatable. The story of that 20 something year old making friends with a high school student, OK sure it's possible. The story of that 20 something year old hiding out for a week with that high school student at her single dads house, that's starting to stretch it a little. The story gets a little far-fetched when the single dad allows this 20 something year old stay in his house while she "waits to move into her apartment." I'm pretty sure no one would do that irl, except I suppose if it's Keira Knightley. Keira Knightley always pretty, acting is sometimes questionable, but well done in this film. Chloe Grace Moretz who I usually like and is destined for a long successful career added another positive credit to her resume. Sam Rockwell, always good, never enough screen time. Is that how he does it? Overall the film was good humored with sympathetic characters. I just call bs on one issue which only barely affected my likeness of the film. This film had strong performances from the cast and fluid directing. Overall I'd say 6.6/Z
