Mistress America
First screened in July 2015
Director: Noah Baumbach. Cast: Lola Kirke, Greta Gerwig, Heather Lind, Matthew Shear, Jasmine Cephas Jones, Michael Chernus, Kathryn Erbe, Cindy Cheung. Screenplay: Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach.

Twitter Capsule: Tracy's nerves are closest thing to a point of interest. Even those evaporate. Abrasive in most ways it could be.

VOR:   Baumbach, Gerwig stuck repeating themselves or, at best, responding hermetically to their prior work. Prosaic (again) on creative integrity. Clichéd on New York and extended adolescence.
