'Mistress America'

This latest offering from director Noah Baumbach and co-writer/star Greta Gerwig represents their first flirtation with old-school screwball. It begins in familiar Baumbach territory: 18-year-old Tracy (Lola Kirke) finds herself adrift at Barnard when she's rejected from an elite literary society. She ends up borrowing more than just inspiration from her manically loquacious stepsister-to-be, Brooke (Gerwig). Then the film makes a hard left into highly choreographed ensemble comedy, full of enough social satire and trademark observations about growing up to satisfy the cultural appetite for coming-of-age-in-New-York stories.
