Maggie's Plan

"Something between Shakespeare, Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach, a cautionary tale filled with Manhattanite wit and small moments that have the ring of truth." - Newsday

Writer-director Rebecca Miller, expanding on the source novel by Karen Rinaldi, has delivered something as rare as a unicorn: a sophisticated, beautifully written romantic comedy for adults.

"Shakespeare would have loved the conceit: Maggie (Greta Gerwig), a well-intentioned university administrator in New York, falls in love with John (Ethan Hawke), a married writer – until she realizes she’s made a mistake, and contrives to give him back to his ex-wife Georgette (Julianne Moore), a chilly academic. It works, because the dialogue is so bright and the performances so grounded. Moore, rocking a Danish accent and a wardrobe of leather and fur, flies closest to the sun. But Miller (daughter of the playwright Arthur Miller) always knows when to cut to a close-up: These three can’t be foolish when you’re looking into their eyes.

"Comparisons to vintage Woody Allen are inevitable – smart-talky urbanites flummoxed by love – but Miller’s characters are complete, singular people, and her take is thoroughly female. She subverts the genre, and wakes it up." - Johanna Schneller, Globe & Mail
