More Info:
  • Dan Mecca

    Miller’s New York, full of academics who still have the capacity to act like children, isn’t exactly new, but plenty fascinating.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Maggie’s Plan is an ensemble piece, with Maya Rudolph, Travis Fimmel, and a magic, romantic New York rounding out the cast. They’re all great, but it’s Gerwig who’s just so damn gosh-wow.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    It’s a sweet, faintly screwball, faintly Shakespearean look at love, families and what happens when a well-made plan goes just a bit awry.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Johanna Schneller

    Miller’s characters are complete, singular people, and her take is thoroughly female. She subverts the genre, and wakes it up.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    It’s a fine brew, equal parts cynical and whimsical, dark and sunny. It’s fairly slight but nearly great.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    Without pushing or showing off, Miller creates a breezy comedy that pulls you up short. Buoyed by faultless actors who mesh beautifully, Maggie's Plan tickles you with laughs that can — suddenly or even days later — choke you up with emotion.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Eric Kohn

    Miller applies Gerwig to the center of a busy story with simple themes, but it glides along so effortlessly that its reductive qualities barely register. The filmmaker's exceedingly smart screenplay is the real plan, and Gerwig's performance puts it into action.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Kevin Jagernauth

    Witty, observational, and hilarious, Maggie’s Plan is the kind of richly complex dramedy that proves to be the rare picture that serves both halves of that genre description fully, equally, and satisfyingly.

  • Robbie Collin

    Don’t underestimate the knitwear in Maggie’s Plan. This comedy from Rebecca Miller says more about the human condition through its cardigans than most films this summer have managed in their scripts.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Tom Duggins

    Maggie's Plan is over-educated satirical skewering at its finest - to be enjoyed at leisure, between symposia perhaps, or other perambulatory Manhattan-style discussions of crypto-narratives in the modern family unit.

    CineVue Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    Intelligent and screwball-funny with clever and complicated female characters.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jimi Famurewa

    A perfectly cast comedy of manners that couches complex emotional questions in joyous farce and continues Gerwig’s reign as the undisputed Queen Of Quirk.

    Empire Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Ms. Miller’s choices are hard to argue with. She steers gracefully through a zigzagging plot, slowing down for quiet, contemplative stretches and pausing for jokes that are irrelevant but irresistible. She finds a tricky balance of farce, satire and emotional sincerity, a way of treating people as ridiculous without denying them empathy.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    Ms. Miller proves to be an original, setting her comic characters in motion like mini-planets that spin in eccentric but overlapping orbits.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Katie Walsh

    The writing crackles, and Miller doesn’t waste time getting right at the meat of the story.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • John DeFore

    The picture is one part vintage Woody Allen, a few parts Screwball-era comedy of remarriage, and a vigorous shake of Gerwig herself, without whose particular spirit — "so pure," as an admirer puts it here, and "a little stupid" — this scenario might have trouble getting off the ground.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    All three leads get stronger as the movie goes along, in part because Miller’s full intention isn’t clear until about halfway through. These characters are foolish without being idiots, which produces a more sophisticated type of comedy.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Dennis Harvey

    Miller is greatly helped by all her major collaborators here.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nigel M Smith

    It’s unpredictable and a bit of a mess. And that’s what makes Maggie’s Plan such a delight.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Calvin Wilson

    A sophisticated comedy about New Yorkers who might easily be mistaken for characters in a Woody Allen movie.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    The Oscar winning Moore slings just enough of an accent for her lines to be funny. Her top-knot hairstyle says everything about the character we need to know — frosty, severe.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Ty Burr

    This is the rare occasion when one of these brittle, neurotic social comedies serves as the vehicle for a woman’s sensibility rather than a man’s. In the process, Miller quietly but forcefully reinvents an entire movie genre.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    There’s also a lightness in the tone that yet allows for real emotion and impressive performances. Maggie’s Plan doesn’t quite transcend the limits of the romantic comedy genre, but it pushes at them.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Ann Hornaday

    Maggie’s Plan exerts unmistakable charm, and once it hits its stride and the titular scheme kicks into gear, the movie takes on its own weird, giddy rhythms and really soars.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Sometimes that tips too far into silliness (the final scene, especially, works strenuously towards an end-cute); still, its mildly subversive rom-com sensibilities are just sour-sweet enough to pull it off.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    Writer-director Rebecca Miller never wrests her movie free of its associations with the films of Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach, and some of it plays like a generic indie film rom-com.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Maggie’s Plan isn’t perfect — the threads of its plot are sometimes a little too loosely knit — but Miller’s clearly got her finger on the pulse of the New York intellectual comedy.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    Like any artist, Miller has the right to reinvent herself, but we don’t need one more director of winsome, Sundance-ready rom-coms. That said, as winsome, Sundance-ready rom-coms go, Maggie’s Plan is a pretty winning one.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • David Edelstein

    Maggie’s Plan doesn’t quite gel, but it’s very enjoyable, and it has a solid emotional core.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • April Wolfe

    Maggie's Plan is a fun light comedy with memorable characters, from a writer-director who lives up to her lineage (Arthur Miller's her dad), but it relies heavily on Gerwig's predictable charm and sometimes seems more Woody Allen than Rebecca Miller.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Connie Ogle

    Gerwig and Hawke are outstanding reasons to see this movie, but your patience — just like Maggie’s — will be tested before it’s over.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Christy Lemire

    Maggie’s Plan almost isn’t screwball enough. The characters must undergo some introspection, as well, and striking a balance between those two dynamics proves challenging. Full Review
  • Jake Cole

    As a writer and director, Rebecca Miller is at her best when she finds the shared wavelengths of her lead cast's divergent styles.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • A.A. Dowd

    A comedy that proves that an appealing cast (Gerwig, Ethan Hawke, Julianne Moore) and a wonderful premise are no guarantee of big laughs.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Nina Corcoran

    The script, although endearing, is too poorly edited to lift its quirks to the next level, no matter how many stars show up for roll call.
