Maggie’s Plan

Maggie's Plan

Reliable indie muse Greta Gerwig (Baghead, Greenberg, Frances Ha, Mistress America) stars in this likable romantic comedy from writer-director Rebecca Miller (The Ballad of Jack and Rose, The Private Lives of Pippa Lee). Gerwig stars as a thirtysomething college instructor who comes up with the perfect plan to artificially inseminate herself and become a single mother. That gets derailed when she meets and falls in love with an unhappily married writer (Ethan Hawke). But when he proves to be a selfish burden, she's forced to come up with yet another life-altering plan. The witty, observation comedy takes a moment to find its footing (a jumpy script and some choppy editing don't help), but the fine cast (including Julianne Moore, Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph and Travis Fimmel) eventually settles into the perfect hipster screwball tone. FULL REVIEW: Control, narcissism and love mix with oddball results by Renée Chavez (6/9/2016). 98 minutes R.
