MISTRESS AMERICA is a comedy film directed by Noah Baumbach (The Squid and the Whale, Margot at the Wedding, While We’re Young) and written by Baumbach and Greta Gerwig (Frances Ha). It premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and received positive reviews.
In the film, Tracy (Lola Kirke) is a lonely college freshman in New York, having neither the exciting university experience nor the glamorous metropolitan lifestyle she envisioned. But when she is taken in by her soon-to-be stepsister, Brooke (Gerwig) – a resident of Times Square and adventurous gal about town – she is rescued from her disappointment and seduced by Brooke’s alluringly mad schemes.
