Mistress America | Ratings & Reviews

"Noah Baumbach’s latest pairing with Greta Gerwig is a distinctly modern film imbued with the spirit of a screwball comedy. It’s the director’s funniest since his debut Kicking And Screaming, and his most optimistic. There’s still a rich vein of cynicism running through every line of dialogue, but Baumbach’s been stripping away some of his more caustic impulses in recent years, and just as Frances Ha and While We’re Young had a lighter touch than the films that preceded them, this one is practically fizzing."

"Confirms Gerwig as one of the great, fearless screen comediennes of her generation..."


"Steamrolls through its mesmerizingly dense running time with such joyous violence that its themes only bubble up to the surface in retrospect..."

Time OutTime Out

"A sharp, aware and surpassingly kind portrait of the agony and ecstasy of becoming yourself."

The Washington PostThe Washington Post

"Eventually travels down roads of broken trust and acceptance of reality, but please don't let those heavy themes suggest this movie is anything other than pure delight."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"An hilarious, rather theatrical show-down at the fancy house of an ex-best friend provides the story's raison d'être and, for many, this will be reason enough to see it."


"The film has nothing if not great vitality and an active creative spirit..."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"Sharp, fast and witty, it’s old school screwball comedy with a cool modern twist. And Greta Gerwig is a bona fide genius."
