Noah Baumbach is quietly impressing Movies In Focus with his cinematic endeavours. Mistress America reunites the director with Greta Gerwig, the star of Greenberg and Frances Ha (they co-wrote the script).
Here’s the synopsis:
Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she is taken in by her soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke (Greta Gerwig) – a resident of Times Square and adventurous gal about town – she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke’s alluringly mad schemes.
It’s difficult to sell this type of quirky movie in easy digestible bites – but the below trailer and clips do the trick.
Welcome to the Great White Way
Mistress America opens in the UK on August 14, 2015.
