Mistress America

Greta Gerwig and director Noah Baumbach reunite after 2012's fantastic Frances Ha for this comedy about Tracy (Gerwig), a lonely college freshman in New York. She's rescued from solitude by her soon-to-be stepsister Brooke, an adventurous type who entangles Tracy in alluringly mad schemes. Says Sundance Film Festival: "Mistress America is a comedy about dream-chasing, score-settling, makeshift families, and cat-stealing."

Feel good only

Go to see Francis Ha, the last film of the same director with same cast. It has more to deliver than this film.

Eventually travels down roads of broken trust and acceptance of reality, but please don't let those heavy themes suggest this movie is anything other than pure delight.

An hilarious, rather theatrical show-down at the fancy house of an ex-best friend provides the story's raison d'être and, for many, this will be reason enough to see it.

The film has nothing if not great vitality and an active creative spirit...

Sharp, fast and witty, it’s old school screwball comedy with a cool modern twist. And Greta Gerwig is a bona fide genius.
