Review: Maggie’s Plan (FILM)

Director: Rebecca Miller

Starring: Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke and Julianne Moore

I’m becoming a big fan of Greta Gerwig, and after stalking her imdb page, I came across this film: Maggie’s Plan. Essentially, the film centres around Maggie and her desire for a child (but not necessarily the father that would come along with it.)

We are presented with a character who is very organised and seems to get what she wants as she is very good at planning. The trailer for this film, I think, is fantastic, as it somehow conceals a major part of the plot line but still gives you a good taste of what it is about.

This film is funny, nicely shot, plays attention to little details (for example, you may notice mentions to Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, which is in this case are very fitting) and is a good example of how life can’t’ really be planned. It’s a fun love story set with New York City as a backdrop. I do recommend this film, trust me, the 1 hour and a half will fly by. A great little film.
