The the well-intentioned Mistress America is true independent comedy, and that's not a good thing.
Review by Matt CummingsActress Greta Gerwig and Director Noah Baumbach hit paydirt with 2012's Frances Ha, showing that that Sacramento-born actress and Brooklyn helmer could craft a funny, poignant comedy about struggling to identify your place in the world. But 2015 already producing a strand of very good independent comedies - Dope, While We're Young, and The DUFF among them - Mistress America arrives feeling a bit rushed, stumbling often, but ultimately delivering a decent quirky time.
