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…

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • SCIENTOLOGY IS LOSING ANOTHER MAJOR CELEBRITY
    |


    Another one of the most famous female members of the church of Scientology is very quietly planning to extricate herself from the organization. She won’t discuss it now and perhaps never will, but she used to be a close friend of Leah Remini. It’s a brave thing for a celebrity to do, but this actress has been having doubts for awhile and Leah’s anti-Scientology series pushed her even farther. Longtime members have to adjust to losing most of their friends and many business associates (assistants, managers, accountants, nannies etc) so it takes a LOT of preparation. This will be a huge slap in the face of David Miscavige.
