The upcoming Jennifer Lawrence star, “No Hard Feelings,” revolves around a captivating Long Island character who lacks direction in life.

But the clumsy Percy poses more of a challenge than she anticipated, and time is running out. She only has one summer to make a man out of him or she loses everything.”
