Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, May 29th at 5:25 for Maggie’s Plan at the Landmark E Street Cinema . Look for Laine wearing a blue dress in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
Writer/director Rebecca Miller (The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, The Ballad of Jack and Rose) returns with a witty, modern romantic comedy. Greta Gerwig stars as Maggie Hardin, a vibrant and practical thirty-something New Yorker working in education, who without success in finding love, decides now is the time to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), an anthropology professor and struggling novelist, Maggie falls in love for the first time and adjusts her plans for motherhood. Complicating matters, John is in an unhappy marriage with Georgette (Julianne Moore), an ambitious academic who is driven by her work. With some help from Maggie’s eccentric and hilarious best friends, married couple Tony and Felicia (Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways. Maggies Plan is a sweet, sophisticated and funny exploration of the unexpected complexities of modern romance, mixing heart and humor in a story of the delightful variability of relationships over the course of time.
