Mistress America


It is a rare and fortunate thing, to realize as you’re watching it, that you have a new movie to add to your favorites.
I wish I could hug this script, wish I was there when the collaborative duo Baumbach-Gerwig was working on it, wish I could write as genius, hilarious, confident, moving, wish I could see again and again the scene in which Brooke (Greta Gerwig) is reading her soon to be ex step sister’s story, flips the page around but the other five people that are also reading it tell her to not flip the page so quickly, as they have not finished reading yet.
