R, 84 Minutes, 2015
Starring: Greta Gerwig as poster child of today’s 30-year-old, Lola Kirke at poster child of who we want to imagine 18-year-olds are today
Directed: Noah Baumbach (of talky, angst ridden, hyper contemporary movies like Frances Ha and While We’re Young)
Best Thing About It: Very witty dialogue with good laughs
Worst Thing About It: Dialogue all feels manufactured by excellent writers (Baumbach and Gerwig). None of it feels like things people would actually say, but what they wish they had said.
Oddest Thing About It: Great New York City piece, but as I am neither 18 or 30, I have no idea how real it is. But it sure looks cool.
Overall: Of-the-moment film with winning and complicated parts by leads. More interesting than the plot summary leads you to believe.
Rating: 2 ½ RaMaKs
