Mistress America, 2015 - ★★★½

My opinion on Baumbach (and Gerwig) seems to jump all over the place, often within the same film. I had hoped this might be the film that tied everything together in a more satisfying way but sadly it isn't. It feels like the films we've seen before: jumping between charming and irritating, amusing rather than funny, a forced plot forcing characters down unnecessary paths when we'd happily watch them just talking to each other.

But I did like it.
