MAGGIE’S PLAN might just be the romantic comedy you didn’t know you needed to see. In this candid interview with filmmaker Rebecca Miller, we get the inside scoop on Miller’s creative process for developing each of the film’s characters. Miller shares what it was like to work closely with the actors and creative team to determine every rich detail about the characters – from their job to their personal style. She even shared her ideas about the taste of the elusive (but tasty) Bavarian Pickle! How’s that for details? Check out the interview below!
In Rebecca Miller’s witty, modern romantic comedy MAGGIE’S PLAN, Greta Gerwig portrays Maggie Hardin, a vibrant and practical thirty-something New Yorker who, without success in finding love, decides to have a child on her own. But when she meets anthropoligist John Harding (Ethan Hawke), Maggie falls in love and immediately adjusts her plans for motherhood. Complicating matters, John is in a strained marriage to brilliant academic Georgette Nørgaard (Julianne Moore). With a Greek chorus of Maggie’s eccentric best friends Tony (Bill Hader) and Felicia (Maya Rudolph), Maggie sets into motion a new plan that catapults her into a nervy love triangle with John and Georgette, intertwining their lives and connecting them in surprising and humorous new ways. MAGGIE’S PLAN is a sweet, sophisticated and funny exploration of the unexpected complexities of modern romance, mixing heart and humor in a story of the delightful variability of relationships over the course of time.
