So … according to the movie That Awkward Moment, there’s this point in a relationship called “The So” during which someone turns to you and says, “So …” and follows it up by asking a relationship defining question like, “Where is this going” or “What are we doing?” That absolutely can be an uncomfortable scenario, but for ladies who really know how to pick them, like Imogen Poot’s Ellie, the awkwardness doesn’t stop there. In That Awkward Moment, Zac Efron, Miles Teller and Michael B. Jordan play a trio of friends who make a pact to indulge in the single life together to help take Mikey’s mind off his divorce. However, shortly after making that pact, Jason spots Ellie. He may initially peg her as yet another brief fling, but soon realizes he can’t tear himself away. No one has ever had this effect on him and he’s determined to learn more – even if it means making quite a few awkward mistakes in the process.
In honor of That Awkward Moment’s January 31st release, Poots hit the New York City press circuit and sat down with Collider to reveal which of her co-stars held doors for her, the one who’s most like his character and who can turn on the charm via improvisation. Read about all of that as well as Poots’ least favorite pickup line, the key to Gramercy Park, her excitement to work with Josh Boone on his upcoming feature, Pretenders, and loads more in the interview below.

Remember that time Miles Teller tried to hold Michael B. Jordan’s hand and then Zac Efron got within kissing distance of Teller? Now that was an awkward moment!
In their latest film, That Awkward Moment, Efron, Teller and Jordan star as Jason, Daniel and Mikey, respectively. Jason enjoys his quick flings, Daniel’s got a good thing going with his wing-woman, Chelsea (Mackenzie Davis), and Mikey “checked the boxes” and is enjoying the married life – until he’s not.
When Mikey’s wife suddenly demands a divorce, Jason and Daniel step in to make it all better by making a pact to stay single and play the field together. Trouble is, that’s when Jason spots Ellie (Imogen Poots) at the end of a bar and for the first time in his life, one night might not be enough.

It all began with one, simple line of dialogue, “Yes, grandpa.” Maika Monroe hit her very first film set ready to perform as a mere background extra, but wound up with a line of dialogue and, from there, it was only a matter of time before she went from professional kiteboarder to professional actress.
Monroe stars in the upcoming Sony Pictures Classics release “At Any Price” as Cadence Farrow, Dean Whipple’s (Zac Efron) girlfriend. Dean helps his father Henry (Dennis Quaid) run the family business selling seeds to corn farmers in Iowa. When Henry starts to lose customers to his competitors, he turns to Dean for help, but when Dean opts to pursue his racing career instead, Cadence steps in to be Henry’s #2.
“At Any Price” has enjoyed a very healthy festival run, stopping at Venice, Telluride, Toronto, Zurich, and SXSW, but it’s time for the film to hit the public. In honor of its Tribeca Film Festival presence and upcoming April 24th limited release, Monroe sat down to talk about snagging the role, her character’s chemistry with Efron, working with director Ramin Bahrani, and more.
Catch it all for yourself in the video interview below and see “At Any Price” in full on Tuesday the 23rd at 9pm as part of Tribeca or in theaters when it gets an official release on the 24th.
