Watch the trailer for Noah Baumbach’s ‘Mistress America’

Posted on

Noah Baumbach and Greta Gerwig are back together again for another movie about what it’s like to be a young, directionless woman in New York.

In the new trailer for Mistress America, Lola Kirke (Gone Girl) stars as Tracy, a college freshman whose New York lifestyle is a lot lonelier and less glamorous than she imagined. She reaches out to her adventurous, soon-to-be step-sister Brooke (Gerwig), who lives in Times Square and quickly wins Tracy over with her madcap schemes. Baumbach and Gerwig co-wrote the script, and it feels a little like a screwball version of their last collaboration, 2012’s Frances Ha.

Mistress America will open in select theaters on Aug. 14.
