A 30s something single woman in New York City (Greta Gerwig) negotiates to receive the sperm of Pickle Entrepreneur friend in her quest to have a child when she meets a married academic to whom she becomes attracted.
'Maggie's Plan' is the type of film that Woody Allen would make and Gerwig is a young, white, Christian female equivalent of Allen.
I enjoy Allen in moderation and I enjoyed this Allen style movie. The scenes are conversational and filled with urban angst and self absorbed characters. The plot is minimal. The pacing is very slow. The outdoor New York City settings are wintery and, for me, thoroughly enticing.
For NYC and Allen aficionados. If that is not you then take a rain check.
