Featured Film:

Mistress America at the Egyptian, Guild 45th and Lincoln Square Theatres

With his second Seattle release of the year, director Noah Baumbach continues his collaboration with star/co-writer Greta Gerwig. An inversion of this spring’s While We’re Young, wherein an older couple became enamored with an younger, hipper pair, Mistress America follows a college freshman (Lola Kirke) as she idolizes an older, more adventurous woman (played by Gerwig) along her various New York adventures. It’s Baumbach’s lightest film, and the best of what is turning out to be a great year for screwball comedies. Our Review.
