"Another quirky indie dramedy about Brooklyn Problems? It’s not exactly what the world of cinema is crying out for. But Maggie’s Plan tweaks the well-worn niche of small-batch pickles and self-regard with enough screwball charm to set itself apart, at least nominally, from the rest. Greta Gerwig—almost a genre unto herself at this point—stars as Maggie, a thirtyish grad-school advisor gearing up to have a child on her own rather than wait for the perfect man to come along.", www.ew.com
"Two of them, “Angela,” her 1995 debut, and “The Ballad of Jack and Rose” (2005), were her original screenplays, while two — “Personal Velocity” (2002) and “The Private Lives of Pippa Lee” (2009) — were adaptations of her own prose.

Those are left to Maggie (Greta Gerwig), John’s New School colleague for whom he leaves his celebrated Columbia professor wife (Julianne Moore) — and it’s Maggie’s oft-frustrated perspective from which we view this comedy about love, parenting and divorce.
