“In the boisterously witty and unpredictable rom-com Maggie’s Plan, an excitable New School employee with control-freak tendencies (Greta Gerwig) falls in love with an adjunct prof of “ficto-critical anthropology” (Ethan Hawke), who himself is in a failing marriage with a professionally overshadowing Danish academic (Julianne Moore, relishing her accent). Writer-director Rebecca Miller’s decisively shambolic setup takes a flying three-year leap early on, and the results play like a second love triangle: between Woody Allen’s neurotic punchlines, Noah Baumbach’s idiosyncratic intelligence, and Paul Mazursky’s modern social dilemmas. The zingy voice is all Miller’s, of course, but it helps that she’s working with a brilliant ensemble cast including Bill Hader, Maya Rudolph, and Travis Fimmel as a pickle entrepreneur who epitomizes everything lovably farcical about Brooklyn culture.” (Aaron Hillis, The Village Voice)
