Movie Review: Mistress America

Tracy and Brooke spend time together in "Mistress America"

Tracy and Brooke spend time together in “Mistress America”

Over the years, there have been a few mainstream comedies that were good (21 Jump Street and 22 Jump Street are among the best). Most of them have stale jokes, acting, and don’t live up to their full potential. That’s why off-beat comedies will live on. Mistress America is no exception. For Tracy Fishko (Lola Kirke), she wants to have the college experience she had hoped for. In New York City, it could be tough. She gets news from her mother that she’s marrying the father of Brooke Cardinas (Greta Gerwig). One night, Tracy calls her. And they spend time in Times Square. Brooke has an idea of opening a restaurant, which leads them to travel to Connecticut. Director Noah Baumbach, a friend and collaborator of Wes Anderson’s, creates a moving homage to the screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s that is funny and heartfelt. With great chemistry between Gerwig and Kirke, funny, quotable lines, and amusing situations, Mistress America is movie about chasing your dreams.
