NYWIFT co-presents with the 53rd New York Film Festival a case study of Filmmaker Rebecca Miller's latest film Maggie's Plan as part of the NYFF Live Nightly Talks. Key creative team participating include Rebecca Miller (Director/Producer), Damon Cardasis (Producer), Rachael Horovitz (Producer), Sam Levy (Cinematographer) and Sabine Hoffmann (Editor).
In Rebecca Miller’s witty modern romantic comedy Maggie's Plan, Greta Gerwig portrays 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 Harding (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 (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways. In this charming unconventional comedy, Maggie learns that sometimes destiny should be left to its own devices. Maggie's 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.
