Mistress America Trailer

"She did everything and nothing. Being around her was like being in New York City." Fox Searchlight has debuted the first trailer for Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, co-starring Greta Gerwig and Lola Kirke as oddball unlikely friends in New York City. This film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to great buzz, and has been called a spiritual sequel of sorts to Frances Ha, the last film from Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach. Essentially it picks up with the character and another one of her friends, this time her "soon-to-be stepsister". This looks quite charming and quite fun, and perhaps painfully honest, but that's why it's getting such rave reviews. Get your first look below at Baumbach's other new film this year.

Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Noah Baumbach's Mistress America, direct via YouTube:

Mistress America Poster

Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York City, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she is taken in by her soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke (Greta Gerwig) – a resident of Times Square and adventurous gal about town – she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke's alluringly mad schemes. Mistress America is the ninth feature from filmmaker Noah Baumbach, following While We're Young, Frances Ha, Greenberg, Margot at the Wedding and The Squid and the Whale. The script was co-written by Baumbach and Gerwig, and is a kind of spiritual follow-up to Frances Ha. The film first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Fox Searchlight will release Baumbach's Mistress America in theaters starting August 14th.

    I wish I could unsee that.

    Does this movie seem like it's trying too hard? Maybe the trailer isn't cut appropriately, because I was annoyed and not laughing. Probably a love/hate it movie?...Or a hipster-y pretentious attempt at a "screwball comedy"?
  • DAVIDPD
    Tired of Baumbach's fairly static direction.
  • I sort of laughed at this, but also wanted to go to my driveway, open my car, take the and brake off and let the car roll on top of me after watching this.
    • backwardsprogress
      Yeah... that kinda sums up how I felt as well.

    Its the weirdest thing, I can tell Greta Gerwig is funny... I really can. But I didn't laugh at all through the trailer. Maybe like @DAVIDPD:disqus said, its the direction, or the editing, or the just the way the trailer was cut. Just didn't get anything from it. Maybe when it finds its way to Netflix?

    I'm not sure. Maybe it's about the story and not about the laughs... Gotta check that out ...

    Gerwig always looks like she needs to take a dump.
