Ethan Hawke And Greta Gerwig

Sony Pictures Classics has released the first trailer for Rebecca Miller‘s new film, Maggie’s Plan, the indie comedy starring Greta Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore, Bill Hader, and Maya Rudolph.

Gerwig plays a 30something pragmatic New Yorker who falls for a ficto-critical anthropology professor (Hawke), who’s unhappily married to a Danish academic (Moore), and all of her plans go out the window.

The film made the festival rounds last year, including Toronto Film Festival, followed by Sundance, New York and the Berlin Film Festival. Maggie’s Plan, a comedy about an affair, opens in select theaters on May 20th this summer. Check out the first trailer and poster below.

Looks like a Woody Allen movie that one can enjoy.

Greta Gerwig And Ethan Hawke

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. 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.
