Fox Searchlight Pictures has just revealed the trailer for Mistress America, the new comedy drama starring Greta Gerwig and newcomer Lola Kirke. The film reteams Gerwig with Academy Award-nominated director Noah Baumbach, who previously worked with the star on both Greenberg and Frances Ha. Baumbach and Gerwig also collborated on the Mistress America screenplay. Check out a look at the result in the player below!
In Mistress America, Tracy (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.
“Noah’s distinct cinematic voice and keen sense of humor are an ideal fit for what we do at Searchlight,” said Fox Searchlight Pictures Presidents Nancy Utley and Stephen Gilula when they acquired Mistress America earlier this year. “We are thrilled to be working with Noah and Greta and couldn’t be more excited to be taking their new collaboration to audiences.”
Produced by Baumbach and Gerwig alongside Scott Rudin, Lila Yacoub and Rodrigo Teixeira, Mistress America is set to hit select theaters August 14.
