Description

From writer-director Noah Baumbach comes this witty comedy starring Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke. Tracy (Kirke) is a lonely college freshman who longs for confidence, a guy and membership in a snobby writers’ group. But when she meets her free-spirited future stepsister Brooke (Gerwig), the two have a wild New York adventure that gives Tracy a new outlook on dreams, friendship and cat ownership.

Terrible, terrible film. It's reminiscent of Dawson Creek's verbal diarrhoea monologues, prepare to cringe.

Quirky and fun

Very funny, clever dialogue and original plot. Interesting leading lady and a great actress. Great Gerwig also charming as always.
A must-see!

If you like the previous films from director Noah Baumbach (imagine a cross between Woody Allen and Wes Anderson) then it's a fairly sure thing that you'll like this one. Although Mistress America isn't as good as the fantastic Frances Ha from a couple of years ago, it's still a funny, interesting film that's full of memorable characters who are both equally endearing and annoying. Not for everyone, maybe, but that's a good thing.
