Mistress America (Noah Baumbach, 2015), 2h20, Film4
For this week’s Greta Gerwig/Noah Baumbach fix, take your pick from this one or Frances Ha, which precedes it. Both cast co-writer Gerwig as a New Yorker effervescent about the city, full of ideas — some of them wild — but blessed with enthusiasm and a seductive nature. In 2015’s hilarious Mistress America, Gerwig’s future restorer Brooke becomes an object of fascination for her new half-sister, Lola Kirke’s clumsy literature student Tracy. Fiction and reality vie for the job as Tracy finds inspiration for her short stories in her new friend. Simon Wardel
