Most stories pivot on something happening. But in "Laggies," nothing has happened. Ten years after high school, the character played by Keira Knightley is jobless, directionless and lagging behind her former besties, who are married, pregnant and have moved on. She is the definition of arrested development. She tells him she is going on a career retreat but instead drops out and gives herself a week to find herself. She does so by hanging out with a group of high school kids she meets who are contemporary versions of herself and her friends. She even crashes with the one who is her mini-me, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, whose mother abandoned her and who lives with her goofy but loving single father, drolly played by Sam Rockwell. The result is like traveling to the past to bond with her bright, articulate and directionless younger self, curated by Rockwell's iffy parenting choices. Director Lynn Shelton, a mumblecore alum who wrote and directed "Humpday" and whose TV credits include "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project," forgoes a potential "Bridesmaids"-type tale of sorority for the road more traveled, toward a predestination... It's a long way to go to make such a conventional observation (even if the guy is a Jordan Catalano -type wannabe played by Daniel Zovatto). Guess the characters are not the only "Laggies" involved. Laggies ★★ 1/2. Cast: Keira Knightley, Chloë Grace Moretz, Sam Rockwell, Mark Webber, Ellie Kemper, Jeff Garlin, Gretchen Mol, Kaitlyn Dever, Daniel Zovatto, Sara Coates.

Almost the only indisputable fact about Colonel Tom Parker is that he was the manager of the greatest performer in popular music: Elvis Presley. His real name wasnâ€™t Tom Parker â€“ indeed, he wasnâ€™t an American at all, but a Dutch immigrant called Andreas van Kujik. And he certainly wasnâ€™t a proper military colonel: he purchased his title from a man in Louisiana. But while the Colonel has long been acknowledged as something of a charlatan, this book is the first to reveal the extraordinary extent of the secrets he concealed, and the consequences for the career, and ultimately the life, of the star he managed. As Alanna Nashâ€™ prodigious research has discovered, the Colonel left Holland most probably because, at the age of twenty, he bludgeoned a woman to death. Entering the US illegally, he then enlisted in the army as â€˜Tom Parkerâ€™. But, with supreme irony for someone later styling himself as Colonel, Parkerâ€™s military career ended in desertion, and discharge after a psychiatrist had certified him as a psychopath. He then became a fairground barker, working sideshows with a zeal for small-scale huckstering and the casual scam that never left him. And by the height of Elvisâ€™s success, Parker had become a pathological gambler who, at the same time as he was taking, amazingly, a full 50% of Presleyâ€™s earnings, frittered away all his wealth in the casinos of Las Vegas. As Nash shows, therefore, the often baffling trajectory of Elvis Presleyâ€™s career makes perfect sense once the secret imperatives of the Colonelâ€™s life are known. Parker never booked Presley for a tour of Europe because of the dark secret that ensured he himself could never return there. Even at his most famous, Elvis was still being booked to play out-of-the-way towns in North Carolina â€“ because the former fairground barker (who shamelessly negotiated as such even with top record company and film executives) knew them from his days on the circus circuit. And Elvis was trapped playing years of arduous seasons in Las Vegas â€“ two shows nightly, seven days a week, until boredom and despair brought on the excessive drug use that killed him â€“ because for Parker he was â€œan open chitâ€? whose huge earnings prevented his managerâ€™s losses at the gambling tables being called in. Alanna Nash knew Parker towards the end of his life, and has now uncovered the whole story, improbable, shocking, and never less than compelling, of how this larger-than-life man made, and then unmade, popular musicâ€™s first and greatest superstar.
