Not as good as Frances Ha (which I loved), but if you like
films with interesting central characters that are women, you may like it, too. Quirky, different, and well-written.
Co-written by Noah Baumbach & Greta Gerwig.

As a twenty something who dabbles in "purposeless floundering about" and thoroughly enjoyed Baumbach and Gerwig's "Francis Ha," I thought "Mistress America" was great. Funny, surreal, earnest. It's not a perfect movie by any means, but it struck a chord with me.

Ugh. Possibly the 20-somethings might enjoy this film about people of their generation purposelessly floundering about, but leave it on the shelf if you're over 30. And I don't care if this makes me sound old.

as in Frances Ha, more of Greta Gerwig dithering through her young life. both films were written for her by the Baumbach/Gerwig duo. I don't think I'll be watching their next one.

Awful drek- the characters are repugnant and remain that way until the very end of the picture. The dialogue is like a mash up of badly written, supposedly " witty " sitcom fare delivered at breakneck speed. Annoying and a waste of your time.

The narrative never really grabbed me- a story about buddies trying to find their place in the world. Takes place in New York City, focuses on the life of Tracy (meek) who is a freshman in college and sister-to-be in Brooke (a free spirit). I am sure I won't remember too much from this film once a couple weeks go by

Kind of offbeat film with unknown (to me) actors of varying talent. I think directing may be partly the cause of uneven pace and feeling of awkwardness. Deserves applause and viewing for everyone's effort.
