What it's about:

Maggie 's plan to have a baby on her own is derailed when she falls in love with John, a married man, destroying his volatile marriage to the brilliant and impossible Georgette. But one daughter and three years later, Maggie is out of love and in a quandary, what do you do when you suspect your man and his ex wife are actually perfect for each other?

What the critics thought:

Maggie's Plan is Gerwig's show, and once again she proves to be one of the screen's most engaging presences.
Adam Graham - Detroit News

Something between Shakespeare, Woody Allen and Noah Baumbach, a cautionary tale filled with Manhattanite wit and small moments that have the ring of truth.
Rafer Guzman- Newsday

The snow leopard of romcoms: intelligent and screwball-funny.
Cath Clarke - Time Out

Maggie's plan may or may not work out. But as a smart, perceptive commentary on modern times, Maggie's Plan succeeds beautifully.
Calvin Wilson - St. Louis Post-Dispatch

Romantic comedies that feature pregnancy as a dramatic motor are unanimously, and without exception, awful... Yet, here comes the writer-director Rebecca Miller, with her big brain and literary pedigree, and she completely nails it.
Kevin Maher - Times (UK)

Moore packs the performance with so much insight that Georgette becomes the real star of the story, the centre of the triangle with Maggie and John revolving around her.
Matt Brunson - Creative Loafing

More than that will spoil - just go and lap up the keen intelligence of the screenplay and bask in excellent performances from Gerwig, Hawke and Moore
Paddy Kehoe - RTÉ (Ireland)
