Maggie, Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha, Mistress America), falls in love with John, Ethan Hawke (Boyhood) destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant and difficult Georgette, Julianne Moore (Almost Heaven, The Kids are Alright, Still Alice).The movie kept my interest throughout and moved along. But do not expect a comedy that will have you laughing out loud, because all you will get are a few chuckles. Also, this is a very New York City- centric work, so if that is not your cup ‘o tea, do not bother. But no matter: although I have never seen Ms. Miller’s previous works, I will certainly look forward to her next. Congratulations to you, Rebecca Miller, on a thoughtful and enjoyable movie. And nice casting with Julianne Moore.Maggie’s Plan is only technically a Greta Gerwig movie as she is the star of the film, and it displays her style of comedy. I should take that into consideration, because I became a fan of hers after I saw the film Francis Ha, which no movie I’ve seen her in has topped, but this one is close.
