In Rebecca Miller’s witty romantic comedy, Maggie (Greta Gerwig) is a vibrant New Yorker who, without success in finding love, decides to have a child on her own. But when she meets John Harding (Ethan Hawke), an anthropology professor and struggling novelist, she falls in love for the first time. Complicating matters, John is in an unhappy marriage with Georgette (Julianne Moore), an ambitious academic who is driven by her work. With some help from Maggie’s eccentric best friends, married couple Tony (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets in motion a new plan that intertwines their lives and connects them in surprising and humorous ways.
Written and Directed by Rebecca Miller from a story by Karen Rinaldi, MAGGIE’S PLANwas produced by Rachael Horovitz, Damon Cardasis and Rebecca Miller, with Philip Stephenson, Temple Williams, Lucy Barzun Donnelly, Alexandra Kerry, Michael J. Malis and Susan Wrubel serving as executive producers.
