MAGGIE’S PLAN: THAT PRECIOUS COMBINATION OF SMART AND FUNNY

Funny and intelligent are, unfortunately, not words you generally hear describing a movie. (Unless it’s a Woody Allen movie, anyway.) Rebecca Miller’s brilliant film Maggie’s Plan serves up both smart dialog and humor in a delicious manner. Greta Gerwig stars as an achingly real and likeable thirty-something New Yorker who yearns for a baby but has no marriage prospects. Before she can complete her fertilization plans, she meets and falls for a self-centered married professor turned author, played by Ethan Hawke. The resulting love triangle causes many unexpected things to happen and many lessons to be learned. Her best friends, played by Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph, try to advise her. When is the last time you saw a comedy that didn’t EMBARRASS you? If you’re wondering why there aren’t more films like this – it’s because women aren’t given the filmmaking chances they deserve…
