Indie film with a female director. This is where our money should be going. Maggie’s Plan is a light, smart and uplifting comedy with absolutely brilliant performances by the entire cast. Directed by the amazing Rebecca Miller, the film is visually and intellectually pleasing. The soundtrack is great, the writing is sharp and the costumes & cinematography make the experience visually delightful.
