A sophisticated and witty New York set rom-com.

A delightfully funny and cleverly interweaving story of mis-matched relationships, director Rebecca Miller’s film is a real pleasure, with the love triangle between Greta Gerwig (Maggie of the title), Ethan Hawke (a would-be novelist) and Julianne Moore (terrific as the intellectually intimidating Dane) wonderfully drawn out as they engage in witty banter and hilarious rants. With Bill Hader and Maya Rudolph also featuring, it amounts to a real rom-com pleasure. [12A]
