Three sentence movie reviews: Maggie’s Plan
Being a great fan of Gerwig, Hawke, and Moore (as well as Maya Rudolph and Bill Hader) plus the fact it was written and directed by a woman had me at the theater on the first weekend. And I was rewarded with a complicated story (Maggie’s Plan was not what I thought it was at first) and among other things excellent quietly made observations about the divide of household tasks in this modern American life. Plus it was funny.*
Where watched: Hollywood Theater
*Julianne Moore was hilarious as a Danish intellectual, and even Greta Gerwig’s clothing was low-level amusing.

Ah yes, I’m slowly recalling the trailer I saw for this movie. I thought it looked awful (based on said trailer), so I’m pleased to hear that you enjoyed it! I know a lot of people who love Fimmel because they’ve seen his show “Vikings.” What did you think of him? I enjoyed his performance in “Warcraft” (I haven’t seen “Vikings”).
This will most likely be a top-ten movie this year, possibly top 5. I enjoyed Mr. Fimmel’s performance. It was appropriately flat. He’s not in the movie very much, though. Maybe 2.5 scenes.
